Description: In Bangladesh, the Council conducts research and works with the government, NGOs, and the private sector to increase use of reproductive health services, expand the contraceptive method mix, reduce sexual and gender-based violence, improve maternal and child health, and reduce adolescent fertility and help girls delay marriage. Council research results also inform national reproductive health programs and priorities, with a focus on strengthening the capacity of the government, NGOs, and the private sector to deliver high-quality services to people in remote or otherwise underserved areas. We began our work in Bangladesh in the mid-1960s and opened an office in Dhaka in 1990.
