Bangladesh Parliamentary Forum for Health and Well being

Bangladesh Parliamentary Forum for Health and Wellbeing (BPFHW) was established on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) day,12 December 2020. Twenty-Two Hon’ble members of parliament (MPs) took initiative to create the forum for policy advocacy, strengthening systems and programs for its impact on the health and development sector. BPFHW organized several national and international seminars, symposiums, and workshops, attending MPs along with government officials, partners and key stakeholders for contributions to national goals. Recently BPFHW organized the first ever MPs conference in Cox,s Bazar with 40 MPs for the advocacy of the tobacco law amendment. Recommendations of MPs from the meeting were added to the draft of the tobacco law amendment by NTCC. Which is a big achievement for BPFHW.

Shastho Shurokkha Foundation (SSF) is the secretariat of BPFHW & providing technical and operational support. This forum has made significant contributions over the past two years not only for preventing COVID-19 but also focused on public health approaches to prevention and control of tobacco and NCDs, maternal & child health, adolescent development, mental health, addressing the UHC within health systems and climate change.
