Bangladesh remains at high risk of the Coronavirus
transmission because of its high population density. A
majority of the population including in the cities live on
daily income and are compelled to continue daily
livelihood activities. National response has been weak
and the pandemic has exposed the country’s fragile
healthcare system.
CIS is conducting a diverse range of preparedness and
response activities including developing community
awareness to prevent COVID-19 transmission and
vulnerability through Disaster Risk Management
Centers and programme activities.
Response measures have been conducted with
strategic objectives of scaling up preventative
measures to limit the spread of the disease,
strengthening the existing healthcare systems and
health workers, supporting vulnerable rural and urban
community impacted by COVID-19 through education,
training, campaign, and home visits, and ensure that
the response activities prioritises and protects the
vulnerable communities
