BHW was established in 2006 by a group of concerned citizens and experts to bring about lasting improvements in the health sector of the country. Since its inception, BHW has been publishing a series of informative and evidence-based reports on important contemporary issues in the health sector bi-annually. In 2019, BHW decided to expand its activities and become more actively engaged in generating evidence and advocating for changes while creating ways of bringing citizens’ voice to the forefront. Its secretariat is housed at James P Grant School of Public Health, BRAC University. Its activities are guided by a Working Group and an Advisory Group consisting of experts from wide ranging related disciplines.
To provide a strong platform through which healthcare professionals and programmers, researchers and citizens can get their voices heard and thereby influence policies and programmes impacting citizens’ health.
A country where all citizens are able to achieve op mum health through policies and programmes based on evidence and citizens’ voice.
