Today, the United States, through USAID, launched the newest phase of its largest investment in Bangladesh, the NGO Health Services Delivery Project. The four-year $55 million project will continue to provide basic health services through Smiling Sun clinics in underserved areas in Bangladesh.
Bangladesh is an important partner of the United States. The Government of Bangladesh (GOB) has been an active partner in planning and implementing USAID/Bangladesh’s (USAID/B) development programs. Past assistance has not only helped the GOB overcome some of its formidable development challenges but has also resulted in several broad-based benefits to the country and its citizens. USAID’s new Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) for Bangladesh follows in this tradition of partnership. Over the next five years, USAID will support the GOB’s plans to transform its economy to achieve Bangladesh’s ambitious vision of becoming a middle income country by 2021 when Bangladesh celebrates its 50th year of independence.
