Innovation Description

Bangladesh has about 5,400 garment factories with 4 million workers and up to 16 million livelihoods dependent on it directly or indirectly. 70% of these workers are reproductive-age women, who have almost no access to healthcare. They work 6 days a week for long hours. Many factories are located in the urban areas, which further complicates the situation of these disadvantaged people as there is no effective urban healthcare system for the underserved people in the urban areas in Bangladesh.
