Health and Population

This paper reviews Bangladesh's achievements in health and population, and examines the role of government policy-making in bringing about this significant social change. Emerging challenges in the sector are highlighted and the strategies for state provision of health and family planning services in view of these challenges and the pro-poor development agenda are discussed. The paper concludes that reducing socio-economic inequalities in health outcomes and improving aggregate health indicators further will be extremely difficult in the future without significant transformation in quality of care and management of service provision.
