International humanitarian organisation Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) commemorated 10 years of providing free medical care at Kutupalong Hospital in Ukhia, Cox’s Bazar, says a press release.
At the celebration programme on Tuesday, Additional Commissioner of Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commission Kazi Mohammad Mozammel Hoque and MSF Project Coordinator Yashovardhan were present among others.
The hospital opened in 2009 as a primary health centre for locals and Rohingya refugees living in camps around Kutupalong.
The centre has now grown into a 100-bed facility. As of April this year, the hospital has provided 925,436 outpatient and 183,682 mental health consultations, and 19,602 referrals to other health facilities for secondary-level treatment.
MSF started working in Bangladesh in 1985.
