A Health care system of a country is designed to meet the medical needs of target populations of the country. In some countries, health care system is distributed among market participants, whereas in others it is made by governments, trade unions, charities or other bodies to deliver planned and quality health care services to the populations they serve. Health services include all services dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of the disease, for maintenance and restoration of health. Health services are the most visible functions of any developed country. The quality of life in a country depends to a large extent on the health care services in the country.
Bangladesh is one of the world’s most densely populated countries. According to the World Bank reports about 80 million people of Bangladesh have no access to modern health care facilities other than immunization and family planning. It says that malnutrition and deaths of women from childbirth are highest here in the world. It also says that two thirds of the children in this country mainly in the rural area are undernourished. It becomes a responsibility of other sections of the society to take care of the issue. In countries like Bangladesh, the government alone is unable to provide all facilities due to huge disparity between the number of health care facilities in urban and rural areas. In such a situation onus is on other bodies to lend their helping hand.
