Elma's mother died because she was only 15 years old. icddr,b treat these people at free of cost. Most of the icddrb,s patient are from the very poor community of our society. And thus icddr,b providing major support in the health sector of Bangladesh.

Each year, icddr,b treats more than 110,000 patients, 35,000 of whom would die without treatment. ICDDR,B depends on donations to continue this lifesaving treatment. We depend on you to be able to continue saving lives.
