Community healthcare programs offering affordable, quality and people-centred solution.
Amount NeededGeneral Support Needed
With the grave resurgence of COVID-19 pandemic in this part of the world, the need for access to quality & affordable healthcare is now direr than ever. The worst affected are the members of the underserved communities of Bangladesh. The crisis stems from two major factors – lack of affordability and the severe lack of health consciousness. Every year, up to five million people in Bangladesh are being pushed into poverty due to excessive out-of-pocket spending on medical needs. With such rapid increase in medical costs, quality healthcare is indeed a matter of great concern.

A look at our health service programs:
In our quest to making health care a reality, Spreeha brings community-based healthcare program that aims to offer affordable, quality and people-centred healthcare solution for everyone. Led by an experienced team of medical professionals, we provide an array of essential healthcare services that includes easy access to physician, safe medication, diagnostic test, pathology and pharmacy services. While working on combating communicable disease, malnutrition, we offer a comprehensive set of diagnostic, consultancy and pharmacy facilities with no compromise on quality. As for the pregnant mothers and neonates, our MCH service including, ante-natal, postnatal, and neonatal care – offers medication, nutritional supplements, vaccination as well as child immunisation aiming at reducing maternal and neonatal death. In the face of emerging new health challenges, we ensure a continuum of care while catering to the medical needs of communities.
Since 2013, Sneho Urgent Health Care, with its 2 healthcare centres at Rayerbazar and Mirpur Area, has served almost 2 lac population including 5000 women during their pregnancy period and after delivery through quality Ante Natal Care (ANC) & Post Natal Care (PNC).
Bangladesh suffers from both a shortage and geographic misallocation of healthcare professionals with an estimated 6.33 physicians per 10,000 population. Addressing this need, Sneho Mobile Health acts as a key solution to improve access to primary healthcare particularly for underserved patients from remote areas who have no means to access specialised care. With the help of information and communication technologies (ICTs), physicians treat distant patients without having to travel physically. Led by a team of professional doctors, patients are able to access doctor consultation anytime from the comfort of their location. As a result, higher number of patients are reached with the same number of resources while improving the outcome as a whole.
Sneho Mobile Health Services started its journey by starting operation in Syamnagar sub-district of Satkhira district of Khulna, Bangladesh. Now the operation has expanded to Meherpur, Gaibandha & Bagerhat districts as well. Residents of the area now have access to primary healthcare from remote locations.
