Bangladesh Urban Health Network (BUHN)

In order to effectively address the health concerns of the urban population, in line with the World Health Day campaign 2010 of “1000 cities… 1000 lives,” civil society needs to take an active part to promote, support, and protect health justice to the poor–non-poor and slum–non-slum dwellers of the city. Having realized the imperative requirement of strong support, fostering, and backup as well as an aggregate effort for awareness building and overseeing the proper implications of existing health policy and interventions, Eminence has structured Bangladesh Urban Health Network (BUHN) at the national level in collaboration with thirty national and international organizations. The forum intends to play the role of a pressure group as well as a policy advocate for creating a platform for the stakeholders in the urban health sector to work together for health justice. Eminence will also encourage the government’s cooperation in this process for enabling meaningful and lasting public-private partnerships.
