While Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries in the world, it has made substantial strides in improving the health and health equity of its populations over the past 40 years. Despite this progress, over 45% of the population still live in abject poverty, more than 10 million children under the age of five suffer from malnutrition, the maternal mortality rate remains one of the highest in the region, and projections indicate a 50% rise in Bangladesh’s population in the coming 40 years – straining already at-capacity social services and public health systems.

To help address these issues and to address the health challenges faced by women, newborns, and children, TRAction is supporting the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b) to conduct implementation research in Bangladesh. The purpose of the research is to identify programmatic gaps in the areas of MNCH, nutrition, population, family planning, reproductive health, and tuberculosis, and develop interventions to address these gaps.

TRAction is additionally working on improving Health Service Delivery; Referral and Surveillance Systems; Water Sanitation and Hygiene; Community Based Treatment; and mHealth.
