Good Health, Education, and Life Trust (HEAL) is a private not-for-profit organization registered under the Trust Act of Bangladesh, established in 2013 with the aim of improving the quality of health care services in Bangladesh.
HEAL Trust brings over 60 years of collective groundbreaking experience among its distinguished partners and advisors who have come together to envision a bright future for Bangladesh through comprehensive, long-term solutions to some of the most pressing issues faced by the country.
HEAL Trust believes that the quality and outcomes of care can be improved through the combined development of a trained health care workforce, institutions of excellence for evidence-based nursing education and training, creating employment opportunity through vocational training, leveraging technology to provide access to health services at the last mile, and a culture of prevention by early diagnosis and intervention. Poverty can lead to unemployment and unemployment can lead to poverty. Nobel Laureate Prof Muhammad Yunus of Grameen Bank and Sir Fazle Hasan Abed of BRAC are trying to alleviate the suffering of people through Micro Finance Program. Creating jobs for the poor means more people will be able to pay for the healthcare services and would be less dependent on the subsidized healthcare. Healthy and educated people will also be able to make better plans for their children’s future.
HEAL Trust’s Outreach clinic at Korail slum, Home Healthcare Service through Bedside Assistant Training Program, Vocational Training for the slum dwellers, Continuing Education for the Practicing Nurses address the key challenges of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for Bangladesh.
