Rural Study Series 6 A Tale of Two Wings: A Tale of Two Wings Health and Family Planning Programmes in an Upazila in Northern Bangladesh


Bangladesh is committed to attaining Health for All by the year 2000. The Upazila Health Complex, supported by union level subcentres and domiciliary health and family planning activities, are the major vehicles through which the government wants to achieve this goal. Several non-governmental organisations, including BRAC, have come forward to help achieve the goal. In order to identify possible areas of intervention, BRAC carried out an intensive study of the government health and family planning activities of an upazila in northern Bangladesh, emphasising particularly at the domiciliary levels. The study team collected a large volume of quantitative and qualitative information about how the different systems operate in that upazila. The data were collected through observation, interviewing, discussion and reviewing of records over a period of three months in mid-1988.
