The hospital will provide diagnostic, treatment and preventive services for children and elderly individuals suffering from diseases caused by the lack of access to basic health care

A UAE-Bangladesh voluntary field hospital has been inaugurated in Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar, as part of a programme by the Zayed Giving Initiative to aid the Rohingya refugees.

The hospital, being the first foreign-led field hospital for the refugees, will provide diagnostic, treatment and preventive services for children and elderly individuals suffering from diseases caused by the lack of access to basic health care, an article on the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said.

The initiative aims to promote the UAE’s role and humanitarian mission, under a joint initiative by the Zayed Giving Initiative, Dar Al Ber Association, Sharjah Charity House and the Saudi-German Hospitals Group, in partnership with the Hope Association for Motherhood and Childhood in Bangladesh and in coordination with the UAE Embassy.

The hospital will be supervised by a team of doctors from the UAE and Bangladesh, under a voluntary and humanitarian framework.
