Medical technology in Bangladesh

Bangladesh Institute of Research and Rehabilitation for Diabetes, Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders (BIRDEM), December 2014
In 2009, BIRDEM was the recipient of a double sea container of medical technology, which they shared with Sylhet Sadar Hospital in Dhaka and Kumudini Hospital. The Sri Chinmoy Centre in Austria collected modern treatment and diagnostic machines to serve the people of Bangladesh. We sent the shipment with the assistance of the Bangladesh Medical Association of North America. In December 2014 a sea container including 3 ultrasongraphy machines and a X-ray unit was delivered to the Ibrahim General Hospital. That was the fifth sea container with used medical equipment in a good condition we could send to Bangladesh via BIRDEM.
