Bangladesh Health Watch (BHW), a citizens’ platform for improved accountability of the country’s healthcare system through evidence-based policy review and citizen feedback, has launched a website for creating public awareness about its activities.

The website will highlight various health related information to give insights to policymakers in policy making for the development of the health sector as well as to the researchers to find new research areas, said a press release issued on Tuesday.

The website was formally launched at a virtual program by Professor Rounaq Jahan, distinguished fellow at Centre for Policy Dialogue and chair of the advisory group of Bangladesh Health Watch. 

Through the initiative, BHW will pursue its key objective to provide a strong platform for health care professionals and programmers, researchers and citizens to get their voices heard and thereby influence policies and programs impacting citizens’ health.

BHW Convener Dr Ahmed Mushtaque Raza Chowdhury, who conducted the program, said the website –bangladeshhealthwatch.org — will be kept updated with contemporary health research, reports, documents and other important information for its visitors.

BHW Advisor Dr Yasmin H Ahmed gave a brief overview and presented some key information about the website.
