Basic healthcare is still out of reach for most in Gaibandha chars
Gaibandha’s rural areas lack access to adequate medical care, and even the district hospital is underequipped to handle the district’s 25.62 lakh residents. A lack of staff at the Sadar hospital, which serves the whole population of 25,62 lakh, even is using the Sadar upazila hospital.
There is neither any community clinic, dutiful skilled attendants, knowledge of reproductive and maternity health among the population, nor family planning ideas and basic health care services available which results in maternal death cases. Every woman deals with a deadly pregnancy condition in the chars of Gaibandha. The situation is worsening everyday.
