In July 2007, CLP-1 initiated the Primary Health Care-Family Planning (PHC-FP) project. The project will also be implemented (in a slightly revised form) in the new working areas of CLP-2, namely the island char villages in Rangpur, Nilphamari, Lalmonirhat, and later in Pabna and Tangail.
The purpose of this survey was to provide insight into the availability of government and NGO health services to island char villagers, which can be used as a basis to decide whether to scale up/down CLP-2’s PHC-FP project and to assess the possibility of other organisations providing health services on the chars. The survey was conducted in forty-one char Unions of ten riverine Upazilas in the districts of Rangpur, Nilphamari and Lalmonirhat.
