Description and results


January 2019 – Following the outbreak of violence in Northern Rakhine State in August 2017, more than 735,000 Rohingya crossed from Myanmar into Bangladesh over a period of several months.These refugees joined some 200,000 to 300,000 Rohingya already in Bangladesh following earlier waves of displacement. The speed and scale of the influx has resulted in significant humanitarian needs With GAC’s support, BRAC is helping to respond to the immediate health needs in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Project activities include: (1) upgrading and improving the health facility structures to ensure a safe space for quality health care services; (2) providing essential primary health care services as per minimum standards, including sexual and reproductive health and mental health; and (3) improving Rohingya refugees’ knowledge and access to healthcare through increased engagement in the community.
