LAMB Project

Organization Description: 

LAMB has over 25 years experience of health work in northwest Bangladesh. For the last ten years, this work has been increasingly focused on the needs of women and children, in recognition that both groups are too often overlooked by other health services.

LAMB?s approach combines health promotion and disease prevention at primary (household, village), secondary (health care centers with basic curative, antenatal, and delivery care) and hospital-based health interventions in a single integrated program.

Development work takes the form of microcredit work with groups of women. Local informal and elected leaders are trained in accountability, integrity, leadership, management, and health service. oversight.

LAMB increasingly works in partnership with government health services, seeking to link community members, service providers, and local authorities in sustainable relationships to deliver responsive, accountable, and reliable services.
