We Provide Medical Care

Health-care & Sanitation

The Rohingya face discrimination and barriers to health care. According to a 2016 study published in the medical journal The Lancet, Rohingya children in Myanmar face low birth weight, malnutrition, diarrhea, and barriers to reproduction on reaching adulthood.[1] Rohingya have a child mortality rate of up to 224 deaths per 1000 live births, more than 4 times the rate for the rest of Myanmar (52 per 1000 live births), and 3 times rate of rest non-Rohingya areas of Rakhine state (77 per 1000 live births).The paper also found that 40% of Rohingya children suffer from diarrhea in internally displaced persons camp within Myanmar at a rate five times that of diarrheal illness among children in the rest of Arakan State and refugee camps in Bangladesh and India.

We provide health-care for the Rohingya refugee in Bangladesh as much as we can. We are also trying to help those, who suffer with unavoidable diseases and particularly the pregnant women who mostly suffer with their delivery and after.

CRDI plans to establish some Primary Health-care Centers in some affected Rohingya areas with the help of our generous donors to provide quality first hand Health-Care facilities to the ailing patients with qualified doctors, subsidized medicines and basic health infrastructure.
