CRCD believes that health is the supreme subject of a man and good and sound heath is a must for employment, poverty reduction and national productivity. Bangladesh despite got independence for nearly 36 years lagging far behind in proving health services to all. Poor medical infrastructure, inadequate heath service facilities, dearth of adequate doctors and nurses particularly in the rural areas has been a common scenario of Bangladesh. Still as many as 38% rural people do not have access to medical services. So CRCD has been putting more attention in Health and nutrition with particular emphasis on more vulnerable women and children. CRCD organized a lot of in house training for mothers on heath and nutrition issues and prevention of various common infectious diseases. To prevent high maternal mortality rate CRCD organized various training on safe motherhood, nutrition and trained TBAs. Moreover CRCD field staffs has made awareness to target rural people on various preventable diseases and provide curative services for most vulnerable and helpless people and referred to hospitals in serious cases. CRCD has been involved in many health related activities of GOB and other NGOs in prevention of HIV/AIDS and STI, EPI and drugs.
