Childhood Disability Scenario
The population of Bangladesh will increase several folds over the next few years, amongst which a large part of the population will be children. They are the most vulnerable yet least taken care off when it comes to critical treatments, specially inborn anomalies. This will prompt the demand for quality and professional child-centric free-of-cost health services to rise up over the next few years.
Some critical facts on Childhood Disability:
- In 2020, 27.9% of the population will be 0 to 14 years old.
- Based on current trends 1 among every 5 will be disabled.
- Among all birth defects around the world, 94% takes place in developing countries.
- 9 in 10 of disabled children do not attend school.
Children are the pillars of a society and future of the nation. Everything that we do, we do to preserve and make a better future for them. Each child needs to be ensured a good and stable future, so that they can be a part of society with their full potential. LMRF with its established brand and growing portfolio of childhood disability care services will be in a significant position to take leadership of meeting those demands.
