Bangladesh Sustainability Excellence Award Finalists 2023: How ACI is giving affordable healthcare services at rural areas
The core of this transformative mission was the desire to make a real difference in the lives of the underprivileged people living in rural Bangladesh, by establishing healthcare touchpoints that aligns with their needs.

This is an initiative in collaboration with the NGO named Agroho Society. This mobile hospital, operating from trucks and boats, serves as a lifeline for grassroots communities. Fully equipped with beds, medical instruments, medicines, and hygiene products, it houses a dedicated team comprising two certified doctors, two trained nurses, and three volunteers. The initiative not only provides free medical consultations but also dispenses essential medicines addressing the immediate healthcare needs of the communities it reaches. Savlon Mobile Hospital also played a pivotal role during the tumultuous period of the COVID-19 pandemic when the healthcare sector faced unprecedented challenges.

To improve healthcare accessibility for the rural population, Savlon also introduced “Savlon Shurokkha,”- a free telemedicine service in collaboration with Pulse Healthcare Service. This condition-free telemedicine service offers free consultations with health professionals and specialized doctors at the cost of only call charge. The service not only saves time and consultation fee for the underprivileged but also provides e-prescriptions through mobile SMS or downloadable links, ensuring seamless accessibility. Additionally, specialized doctors are invited every month to address specific health needs relevant to that particular season and month. Patients can also share medical reports via WhatsApp/Viber/IMO during follow-up check-ups. In alignment with Savlon’s vision of building a healthy Bangladesh, this comprehensive approach has made health care more accessible to underprivileged communities in rural Bangladesh.
