Clinical Service:

skummeslöv dejta Ghashful is providing two types of clinical services to its client. These are:

  1. Fixed Clinic
  2. Satellite Clinic 

Fixed Clinic 

The type of clinical services is being provided from a fixed clinic center. It is a regular-basis health service for the community people. Registered physicians, skilled and trained nurses and health assistants along with experienced TBAs are available in the fixed clinic from 9 am to 5 pm to serve the vulnerable community people. The center is well-equipped with health-service related instruments. Medicines are also available there. Facilities of some pathological tests are also available here. Doctors serve the medical services from 9 am to 1.30 pm at these centers. Free drugs are also provided only for very poor patients. Besides the routine works, special sessions are arranged twice a week where people can get different types of health services including maternal and general health treatments.

Satellite Clinic 

The Satellite clinic has no fixed place. The roaming clinic has successfully been providing medical services from door to door at slum areas of Chittagong city and rural areas. Being very poor, the urban slum dwellers suffering from various health problems and diseases are unable to get health care services from the private clinics. Neither they have adequate health service opportunity nor are they aware about their health risks. The TBAs living at slums are primarily responsible to arrange the clinical sessions at their respective slum areas. The TBAs are generally appointed by Ghashful. 

Safe Delivery Service: 

Special Healthcare services for Pregnant and Lactating mother

With an aim of confirming due response to the critical health condition of mothers and the newborn babies, Ghashful is implementing the safe delivery activities in working areas. Reducing the maternal mortality rate is the prime objective of the program. 

Ghashful emphasizes on appointing skilled attendants at delivery time and referral to a proper service provider for emergency care and thereby strengthening the health care systems and identifying the actions to respond to the delivery related challenges at the community level.

Family Planning Services

Healthcare services for population control

A small happy family with two children at best has been the focal point of Ghashful since its inception. In this perspective, Family Planning oriented healthcare services has been one of the top priority based development issues. 

Bangladesh being a small country has numerous limitations to hold on the pressure of population magnitude as the pressure of the overpopulation on our land as well as our socio-economic condition is to be a great challenge to face on the way of achieving self-reliance. Obviously, Population control has been a key national concern for the Government of Bangladesh. But, the efforts and initiatives from the government level are not individually feasible and viable to face the challenges involved in the process of controlling the over-population problem in a very conservative country. It requires a holistic approach to combat population growth both in urban and rural areas in Bangladesh. 

Ghashful, as one of the pioneer organizations in the sector, is providing basic and comprehensive delivery service among the eligible couples at working areas with the assistance of the District Family Planning Department. The organization has been playing a vital role in disseminating proper knowledge and information among community people aged 15 to 40 years for using local contraceptives and other measures to maintain a small family. 

It is mention worthy that Ghashful received The President Award in 1990 for its contribution in controlling population. The organization was declared to be the best organization in Chattogram by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on the occasion of world population day 1998. Ghashful field workers also received awards of the best workers in the district level family planning sector. 

De-worming Activity

As a notable healthcare service provider Ghashful has been distributing de-worming tablets and medication to the family member of its working areas to ensure sound health condition of the community people. Children and adults of the community are being benefited much by the de-worming activities.

Extended Program for Immunization (EPI)

With a view of decreasing health risks, Ghashful has been implementing the EPI as one of the most mandatory healthcare services for the community people. Under the program, the organization is proving supports for immunizing infants and pregnant women in the working area 

Ghashful TBA group and health assistants play significant role in supporting the program of immunization. Both of these groups are responsible for educating people about the importance of immunization. The organization arranges immunization (TT, DPT & Polio) twice in a week in the fixed clinics of the organization. Besides this, Ghashful arranges regular-basis immunization program 5 times in a month.  Under EPI, Ghashful effectively observes different special days for decreasing child health risks as a part of social awareness building program. Several times Ghashful has been awarded by Chattogram City Corporation for its EPI activities.

In the reporting period, Ghashful was involved with National Vaccination Day, Vitamin A+ Campaign and National De-worming Day as the supplementary force of Chattogram City Corporation. 

Work Place Healthcare Intervention for Garments Employee

Since 2000, Ghashful has been implementing the work place based healthcare intervention targeting the garments employees living in Chattogram City Corporation. 

Chattogram being the second largest port city of Bangladesh has been investing a lion share of the country business. The city is proud to uphold thousands of garment factories and two of the main EPZs in its boundary. In this perspective, a vast number of garments workers have been targeted for the integrated approach of Ghashful healthcare intervention. 

It’s a fact that 90 % of the garment workers have come from the poor families of urban and rural areas. They are not aware about their health care. Moreover, they do

 not get enough time and money to get treatment outside the workplaces. For this reason, this affects their life skills as they do not get timely information. 

Considering the vulnerability, Ghashful CHP is providing the emergency healthcare services and some essential medicines to the garment workers at their work places. To grow awareness about the hazards and the ways to fight off the challenges of the incurable diseases like SRHR and HIV is one of the included initiatives of the program.

Family Health service with Health Card

With an aim of providing basic healthcare services to the community people, Ghashful has been implementing the Health Card project as a means of providing health support to the very poor people.

In 2011, Ghashful launched the ‘Health Card Project’ with the support of INAFI Bangladesh and Rock Feller Foundation. After completion of the project duration, Ghashful has been implementing the project by its own initiative in both urban and rural areas.

The fact is that poor and vulnerable people of Bangladesh get insufficient health service. The people of rural area are deprived of getting proper medical services in time. They even have no knowledge about the right place to go and the way to get the needed healthcare services. Considering the obstacles, Ghashful has been implementing the project to establish the right of the vulnerable and poor community people to get access to medical services. 

The community people of the working areas including Ghashful Samity members can get this service within one-year shelter holding two types of cards. A card holder can get this medical service along with maximum five of his/her family members. 

Card is renewable after the duration of validity with fixed charges for fixed time. Besides getting the general medical treatment, the card holder can also get the facilities of taking diabetic test, pregnancy test at a low price. To grow awareness among the card holders about family planning, nutrition, sanitation etc. is an added initiative of the program.
