For more than 60 years, Pathfinder has partnered with communities and the government of Bangladesh to ensure even the hardest-to-reach people can access contraception. Hand in hand, we have strengthened public-sector health services to better serve women and girls.
Today, our partnership with the government increases access to sexual and reproductive health care through universal health coverage. We support the government with strengthening the public health system, including mentorship and training of health providers, integration of gender-transformative approaches, readying health facilities to provide quality services, and rolling out digital health solutions. We reach the most marginalized and underserved communities, including those living in urban slums, Rohingya refugee camps, and regions devastated by climate change-induced floods and natural disasters.
In Bangladesh, we advance universal access to sexual and reproductive health care, with a focus on contraception.
Strengthening the Health System
In Bangladesh, we support the government to build a responsive and inclusive health system that provides quality care to all Bangladeshis. We do this by:
- Training and mentoring health providers using state-of-the-art curricula and training methodologies.
- Integrating digital health solutions.
Reaching Marginalized and High Need Groups
We ensure everyone, even the most marginalized groups, have access to quality sexual and reproductive health care:
- We improve their access to adolescent-friendly sexual and reproductive health services.
- We leverage public-private partnerships to reach those living in urban slums.
- We enhance the capacity of the health system and local organizations to provide sexual and reproductive health care to Rohingya refugees.
We integrate gender-transformative approaches in our work that contribute to greater gender equity for women and girls.
In Bangladesh, the impacts of climate change are severe, and the effects of climate change are often felt most profoundly by women and girls. We work offer women and girls in low-resource communities the tools, knowledge, networks, and resources they need to remain resilient through climate-induced crises and natural disasters.
