Bangladesh Institute of Tropical and Infectious Disease (Fouzderhat)
Upazila: Sitakunda, District: Chittagong, Division: Chittagong
It is our great pleasure to publish this health bulletin to document the activities that was performed over the last one year in the Bangladesh Institute of Tropical & Infectious Diseases (BITID). The institute is the national institute for tropical and infectious diseases in the country and is dedicated to serve the nation in the fight against such diseases like malaria, kalaazar and other emerging-reimerging infectious diseases to help facilitate the achievement of the SDG. As for-itself BITID was inaugurated by the honourable prime minister Sheikh Hasina in the year 2013 with the vision of developing it into a center of excellence through research, capacity building and service. At the moment, the institute is functioning through its own outdoor and the makeshift indoor in the adjacent 20 bed Infectious Disease Hospital; the super-specialized hospital that is to be built for itself is long awaited. Still we think we had provided some services to the people with the human-resources and willpower that we have; but wish we would be better performing if the 100 bed indoor facility is built and all the vacant posts of professors, Associate professors, Assistant professors and other medical officers & staff are filled up. At the end, I would like to thank and congratulate the initiator of the annual health bulletin of the DGHS for the wonderful step towards the annual audit and digitalization of the nation's health system.
