TMSS Diabetic Care Service
Year of Establishment: 2012
Funded by: TMSS.
Location: 750 Bed TMSS Medical College & Rafatullah Community Hospital, Thengamara, Bogra.
Target Population: General people (specially poor & destitute) who are suffering from diabetes and live in northern part of Bangladesh.
Operational Area: Bogra & neighboring districts.
Project Background: About 30% people of Bangladesh are affected by Diabetes. Prevalence of this disease is increasing day by day. Due to insufficiency of standard modern diabetes service center in northern part of Bangladesh, a large number of both general peoples and diabetic patients deprives from quality treatment services. On the other hand, middle class and low income earning poor people can’t go to Dhaka BIRDEM Hospital, the center of excellence for diabetes treatment. Keeping all these in view, TMSS has established Diabetic care service unit in 2012 in its TMSS Medical College & Rafatullah Community Hospital by own resources in order to provide modern & qualitative treatment services to the diabetic patients at low cost.
Goal: To establish TMSS Diabetic Care Service (TDCS) as the supplementary multifarious service provider of TMSS Health Sector for ensuring proper implementation of it’s objectives.
