The Bangladesh Health Watch (BHW) is a multi-stakeholder civil society initiative dedicated to improving the health systems in Bangladesh through evidence-based critical review of policies and programmes.

Being a civil society platform, BHW is actively following the progression of Covid-19 through research, evidence based advocacy, and mass campaigns.  The pandemic has created considerable amount of fear, stigma and discrimination in our society. To understand the overall situation of the fear and stigma in Bangladesh, BHW has conducted a rapid assessment recently. Based on this research, BHW has developed a policy brief with the summary of findings and recommendations.

Considering the negative impact of the fear and stigma, BHW hopes that this policy brief will be useful to take necessary actions to tackle COVID-19 challenges.
