KOICA provides medical supplies to BSMMU for COVID-19 response

Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) office in Dhaka in collaboration with KBAA (KOICA Bangladesh Alumni Association) has donated emergency medical supplies to BSMMU fever clinic to help with COVID-19 response in Bangladesh.


The supplies included COVID-19 prevention items, including Oxygen concentrators, medical masks, medicines, and other relevant items to improve working conditions of health workers in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU).


The Republic of Korea’s experience of combatting COVID-19 is well known in the world for its 3Ts (Test-Trace-Treat) strategies, KOICA said on Sunday.


Country Director of KOICA Bangladesh Do young-ah said this could be a great momentum for KOICA to support COVID-19 response in Bangladesh.


On behalf of Korean government, KOICA will take necessary measures to curve the epidemic in Bangladesh but also improve the working condition of health workers.


President of KBAA Monzur Hossain MP, said, “I’m glad that we could contribute for the not only patients but also health works at the field level. We, KBAA collaboration with KOICA, is willing to expand our social responsibility activities for the venerable groups in Bangladesh.”


KOICA implements Korea’s grant aid and technical cooperation, supporting the socio-economic development of partner countries.
