IRIN Examines Health Advancements in Bangladesh, Need for HIV Services Among Migrants

November 27, 2013

IRIN examines how Bangladesh has significantly improved some health indicators. The Lancet "recently published a series exploring Bangladesh's surprising success, calling it 'one of the great mysteries of global health,'" the news service writes. According to the series, non-governmental organization participation, improved access to health services, and the "growing participation of women in the work force and a 'dramatic' change in their social status" have contributed to the country's success. In a separate article discussing health in Bangladesh, IRIN examines the need for HIV services among migrant populations. "Interventions aimed at curbing the burden of HIV among people migrating from Bangladesh to India in search of work risk having only temporary impact if such efforts are not institutionalized as part of cross-border policy, experts say," the news service writes (11/26).
