Access to Safe MR for Young Women
This initiative is designed to be implemented in two sub-districts (Mymensingh Sadar and Netrokona Sadar) targeting adolescent girls and young women. This initiative is designed to work on improving the service quality of 20 selected public and private facilities in the area of safe abortion/ menstrual regulation (MR) services.
Due to availability of quality services at the Sadar sub-districts, people from other areas visit here for any health concerns. So SERAC has selected these two areas based on heavy client flow at the facilities and to work on improving the quality of services as well as implement the amendment of Private Medical College Establishment and Operation Rules 2011 at the private health facilities in these two sub-districts to sensitize the service providers through capacity strengthening training and community mobilization to ensure provision of convenient services in a friendly and comfortable environment. Additionally, to strengthen the service provision, digital platform will be utilized to help the women and girls to locate nearby friendly, and safe abortion/ MR care facilities
Beside this, an advocacy will be conducted at both sub-district and national level to support the helpless patients. This advocacy will include DGFP and DGHS officials, Private facility authorities, Bangladesh Private Medical College Association (BPMCA) officials and other relevant stakeholders to ensure a fruitful implementation of this policy.
