Foreword:

Vast majority 130 million population of Bangladesh live in the rural area. Therefore, one has to realize this fact that the basic health problem of Bangladesh relates to the teeming millions of rural Bangladesh. Generally, rural health problem is closely connected with the socio-economic and environmental problems arising out of lack of safe drinking water and reliable sewage disposal facilities. Besides, superstition, flawed education and ingrained bad habits help spread of disease quietly in rural areas.

As one of the member states of World Health Organization (WHO) Bangladesh was committed to implement the program of “Health for all by the year 2000”. Outside the Government efforts the non-Government ones, working within the framework of Government policies in cooperation with general public are considered/ recognized to be supplementary to the attainment of national objectives in different health sub-sector.

As a matter of fact, for finding solutions of health related problems of a great majority of our population of health care are delivery-system has to be made mass-oriented through active community participation and involvement. Without this kind of participation, only government efforts at community health care development are not likely to succeed fully. Keeping with this objective in mind our existing medical education system has to be made more practically oriented and community based and extended to rural communities at the field level. For the doctors of future generation, there is a need for bringing them close to the community while their education career is still in progress so as to enable them to gain practical and comprehensive knowledge about the nature, signs and symptoms, spread prevention and cure of diseases and this learning process should be supported by institution-based facilities and opportunities.

Moreover, To achieve the goal of vision-2021 of the present Govt. of people of Republic of Bangladesh.

May Allah help us in accomplishment of all our endeavors.
