Communication is key to improving family health in Bangladesh.
Behavior Change Communication (BCC) makes use of an expanding
mass media, new technologies, and new ideas in communication to
influence health and social behavior change. BCC is therefore
particularly effective in reproductive health and total health
care programs in the country, since these are areas where millions
of people need to understand, approve, and actually use services.
As the leader in the field, Bangladesh Center for Communication
Programs (BCCP) provides expertise in conceptualization, development,
management, implementation, and evaluation of BCC programs to
meet existing and emerging health challenges. BCCP’s programs
are coordinated through national policy and program strategies
that promote multisectoral collaboration, efficiencies of scale,
and sustainable health behavior change.

Bangladesh NGOs Network for Radio and Communication (BNNRC) is
a changed name of Bangladesh Coastal NGO Network for Radio and
Communication (BCNNRC). BCNNRC has established during April 2000
and registered as trust in the Ministry of Law, Justice and Parliamentary
Affairs with the auspicious of 9 coastal non-government organizations
(NGO) with lead initiatives from COAST (Coastal Association for
Social Transformation Trust).
It has been more than two decades since PROSHIKA, now one of the
largest NGOs in Bangladesh, took its first step. Although the
PROSHIKA development process started in a few villages of Dhaka
and Comilla districts in 1975, the organization formally emerged
in October, 1976. The name 'PROSHIKA' is an acronym of three Bangla
words, which stand for training, education, and action.
The Global Connections and Exchange for Bangladesh project has
established Internet Learning Centers (ILCs) in secondary schools
throughout Bangladesh. These schools and their partner schools
encompass a population of almost fifty thousand students! The
program's main goal is to increase global dialogue and educational
opportunities by installing modern computer equipment with Internet
access in schools, and to develop training and learning projects
for teachers and students.
ASA plans to reach over 5 million borrowers and over 6 million
savings accounts by the year 2008 in Bangladesh alone, but also
committed to sharing its successes in other countries. ASA is
currently involved in several countries world-wide providing ASA
experts to develop financial sectors elsewhere that are inclusive
of low income groups. It will surely not be long before skeptics
are convinced that a financial sector providing high quality products
to all is achievable.
