Accidental Insurance Policy

The Non Motorized Transport (NMT) pullers are engaged in a very risky job. They often commit serious accidents during pulling NMTs that causes even death. But the victim’s families do not get any compensation either from the NMT owners or from the government. As a result, the victim’s families face serious economic crisis. In order to bring some sorts of economic security BEDO arranges accidental insurance policy for the samity members of micro-credit project from Pragati Insurance Company Ltd. Under this policy the NMT pullers get coverage of Tk. 40,000/- against yearly premium of Tk. 50.00 only. It may be mentioned that BEDO has introduced such kind of insurance policy for the first time in Bangladesh. Up to September’14 total 10,446 NMT pullers of UMC project took accidental insurance policy with the help of BEDO staffs and out of this number total 8 policy holders realized claims from the insurance company.

Research Work
Research on ‘‘effect of exposure to air pollution and heat on cardiovascular patients in Dhaka, Bangladesh’’

Dhaka is the 31st most polluted city out of 132 cities across the world according to Environmental Performance Index 2012. Traffic congestion in the central area and smoke from brick kilns are the main sources of air pollution in Dhaka city. Air pollutants are often correlated with an increase in the number of emergency hospital visits and hospitalizations for cardiovascular diseases. Many studies have shown that combination of severe air pollution exposure and heat exposure is associated with cardiovascular morbidity. High temperature or extreme heat contributes to various cardiovascular disease exacerbations.

The objective of the study is to determine whether there is an association between air pollution exposure and/or heat exposure with number of emergency visits for Cardio Vascular Disease in Dhaka city. This study will evaluate the association between these environmental exposure and emergency visits for cardiovascular diseases among people residing in Dhaka.

The data collectors are collecting from emergency patients by a simple questionnaire from National Institute of Cardio Vascular Disease Hospital (NICVDH) 24 hours on daily basis. We hypothesized that daily count of emergency patients visit can be associated with daily air pollution and high temperature. Daily air pollution and temperature data will be collected from Department of Environment (DoE) and Bangladesh meteorological department respectively. Time series analysis will be employed to evaluate the association between daily air pollution and temperature, and the daily count of emergency department visit for NICVDH. This research would substantially contribute better public health implication in Dhaka.

BEDO have started the survey work in February’14 at NICVDH and it will be continued upto January’15 with the financial assistance of Tokyo University of Japan

This research examines to what extent number of emergency patients are associated with air pollution exposure level and/or heat exposure level. Through questionnaire we will collection formation on social indicators of the patients as well. Integrating these information together, we will particularly focus on what types of people are vulnerable against the environmental exposure and why. These findings can be reflected into efficient air quality management and land use planning which potentially reduce heat exposure level between people.

Survey on Measurement of Air Temperature

BEDO conducted a survey on Measurement of Air Temperature in Dhaka City Under the Project "Predict Future Health Risk Posed by Changes in Climate, Land Use and Population” with the Collaboration of Department of Human Ecology, the University of Tokyo, Japan

The major purpose of the survey was to measure the temperature at approximately 40 locations in Dhaka city for a consecutive 24 hours (including night time) to know the variation of environmental condition in an urban area. Later this information will be integrated with health events data to elucidate the effects of temperature variation on various health effects.

One of the major objectives of BEDO is to safeguard the environment from its degradation. In order to conduct research on environment, BEDO established contact with the University of Tokyo and Saga University of Japan. At the invitation of BEDO the professors and researchers of both universities visited Dhaka to discuss with BEDO to undertake a joint research project on environmental health. After elaborate discussions BEDO and the Japanese Consortium for the Health Development Project (Researchers from Saga University, University of Tokyo and National Institute of Health and Nutrition) entered into an agreement on 15 October 2010 with respect to conducting The Environmental Health Project (EHP) in Bangladesh. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by Md. Abdul Bari, Executive Director of BEDO, Prof. Tsukasa Inaoka, Dept. of Human Ecology, Saga University of Japan and Prof. Chiho Watanabe, Dept. of Human Ecology, University of Tokyo.

Prof. Chiho Watanabe and Dr. Shinya Yasumoto, Project Researcher, Dept. Human Ecology, University of Tokyo visited BEDO office on 27 November, 2012. Dr. Shinya Yasumoto came to Dhaka from Tokyo on 23 January 2013 with necessary instruments for measuring air temperature. Two female Bangladeshi students who were studying at University of Tokyo accompanied Dr. Shinya to assist the survey teams. BEDO arranged 1 day training session for 40 Supervisor and 120 data collector on procedure of survey i.e. use of thermometer, GPS and Compass, how to take photographs and when exchange one place to another place etc. BEDO conducted the survey 24 hours in selected 40 locations of Dhaka city on 26 January 2013 successfully.

Promoting Child Rights Program The children from low-income families are deprived of basic needs, which are their fundamental rights. The children are abused in many ways, such as they are forced to involve in a variety of low paid or unpaid jobs due to poverty. The girl children are the worst sufferers in the families. They do not get basic education, nutritious food, healthcare and sympathy from the family. They are often sexually abused which eventually creates permanent physical and psychological adverse effect in their life.

BEDO has undertaken promoting child rights program both for the members of the micro-credit project in Naogaon district and rickshaw drivers project of Dhaka city. BEDO carried out this program with its own initiatives.

Promoting Rights and Empowerment of Rickshaw Drivers (RDs)

The rickshaw drivers (RDs), a large community of poor people, are neglected in the society and lead a very miserable and risky life. Most of the RDs come from countryside being victimized by flood, cyclone, river erosion, famine and unemployment. The RDs lack in knowledge on primary healthcare, get frequently sick. Their health seeking behavior is very poor and generally do not go to doctors for treatment.

In order to address the above issues BEDO has been working with the RDs of Dhaka city since 1995. UN ESCAP first extended financial support to BEDO for providing training to the RDs on traffic rules, road safety and healthcare through a program named Rickshaw Drivers Training Program in Dhaka City. The program started in July 1997 and continued up to February 1998. It was a pilot project as component of the main project Integration of Non-motorized transport into the Urban Transport System of Dhaka.

BEDO implemented the project Promoting Rights and Empowerment of RDs in Dhaka city under the financial support of Manusher Jonno on behalf of DFID/CARE Bangladesh from March 2004 to February 2006. BEDO trained about 23,000 Rickshaw Drivers on traffic rules, road behavior, human rights, healthcare including HIV/AIDS and alternate occupation.
