Doctor Needed in Bangladesh

Kailakuri Health Centre, located in poor rural area of  Bangladesh some five hours drive north of Dhaka, is urgently seeking the services of a volunteer locum doctor for a period of up to one year.

This is a unique centre where health care is “by the poor for the poor.”  Staffed by locals who have been trained on the job, the paramedics handle approximately 47 000 out-patients and 1600 in-patients annually.

Up until now medical supervision has been provided by the founding doctor who is now being forced to retire due to ill-health. A locum is required until a new medical superintendant can take up duties, probably towards the end of 2016.
