Welcome to Radda MCH-FP Centre

In 1974, Radda Barnen (the then Swedish Save the Children), an international NGO, began the operation of the Centre as a project for providing maternal and child health care for the underserved and underprivileged population of Mirpur under Dhaka Metropolitan City.  

It was operated, managed and almost fully funded by Radda Barnen during the first two decades of its existence. In September 1994 with the objective of sustainability and continuous improvement of the quality services rendered by the Centre, Radda Barnen, with the permission of the Ministry of Health, Government of Bangladesh, handed over the complete responsibility of the operation and management of the Centre to a local organization under the name of Radda MCH-FP Centre Trust specially created for this purpose. This is a non- government, non-profit organization with a six member Board under the Trust Act of 1882. Since then Radda Barnen (the then Swedish Save the Children) had been progressively reducing its financial support for the Centre and totally discontinued any support whatsoever in 2004 in contrast with 91 percent of the outlay in 1994.
