Today, Bangladeshi Foreign Minister Dr. AK Abdul Momen announced that World Health Organization (WHO) Director General (DG) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has given the Bangladeshi government great acclaim for its efforts to grow the health sector broadly and guarantee that everyone has access to healthcare.
“The WHO director general highly lauded government’s steps to develop overall health system and ensure health services for all in Bangladesh,” he said in a media briefing about Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s daily engagements on 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session’s sidelines here.
The foreign minister said the community health clinics are an innovation of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina from where people are getting over 30 medicines free of cost.

Momen reported that they informed the head of the WHO that Bangladesh wanted to share its knowledge and experience with other nations.
