Who We are

The Bangladesh Health Development Initiative (BHDI) is a voluntary project initiated by two UK registered charities – BRTUK and BMRF. It is a collective of doctors, healthcare professionals and volunteers from the United Kingdom who have come together to address the medical needs of the most vulnerable people in Bangladesh.


Our parent company is the International Health Development Foundation (www.ihdf.co.uk)

Doing the right thing,
at the right time.









We work with UK and Bangladeshi healthcare professionals and volunteers to help alleviate the medical services needs of the poorest in Bangladesh. Our marquee project is the annual Bangladesh medical tour with British Bangladeshi doctors, nurses and other professionals to deliver free medical camps in rural Bangladesh.
Apart from delivering a much needed service, this helps us to assess where our intervention is needed the most, so we can plan our efforts and resources accordingly and gives an opportunity to non-resident Bangladeshis to connect with and contribute to their root.

What we do

Our long-term intervention

Our long-term intervention effort includes other projects, including but not limited to, the development of a Telemedicine App to connect patients from rural Bangladesh to doctors worldwide, set up a nursing college and to support and standardise village medical network practices. This vision, and more, can only be achieved by support from the wider community so we urge you to support us in all possible ways.
