FHI 360 has worked in Bangladesh for more than 30 years. Since 1976, FHI 360 has conducted more than 100 family planning, maternal health and HIV research projects, which range from evaluation and acceptability of contraceptive methods, family planning service delivery research, maternal health, behavioral surveys for HIV and much more.
For the last 13 years FHI 360 has helped confront the HIV epidemic in Bangladesh, partnering with the Ministry of Health and National AIDS/STD Program to provide HIV prevention, care and support for most-at-risk populations and to strengthen the national response. We also work closely with the National Nutrition Services to improve infant and young child feeding practices throughout the country, the National Tuberculosis (TB) program to address TB, and the national Neglected Tropical Disease Control Program to help control and eliminate neglected tropical diseases.
More recently, FHI 360 in Bangladesh has expanded its focus to take on a wide range of human development challenges. Our experts provide technical assistance to address emerging diseases, develop and oversee implementation of hospital accreditation standards, improve water and sanitation, and integrate a gender perspective into programs.
