An Architect's Dhaka

Dr. Mahbubur Rahman

Part Fourteen

PLANNED urban development in Bangladesh began in the late fifties with the making of urban development plans for the cities of Dhaka, Chittagong and Khulna between 1959-61. Earlier Patrick Geddes prepared a town improvement report in 1917, which the authority did not adopt. Such incidents have happened again and again. For example, the 1959 Master Plan for Dhaka based on unrealistically low population projection was practically redundant after the Independence that changed the scene. Yet it took the authority till 1981 to prepare a set of development programs which was largely shelved except for the part that provided for sites and services plots for the well-offs.

Good Hospital Pharmacy a Must!

A. Y. Sk. Feroz Uddin

In Bangladesh, hospital pharmacy services of both the government and private institutions are of very much drab and bleak for its perfections. Anyone of us can find our hospital pharmacies as of the same arrangement of merely dispensaries to stock and hand over the drug products to the patients on the prescriptions. Currently, it is the main and the only specialty of the professional deliveries of our hospital pharmacies. This is very much shocking to observe and accept by any conscious citizen, politician, health administrators and especially the graduate & post graduate Pharmacists. Graduate and post graduate Pharmacists have been placing their wholeheartedness to participate in the interdisciplinary health care professionals' team in hospitals to develop the standard and usefulness of the hospital pharmacy and to brew the quality and standard of our health care system. It is very much painful to note that no government of the last 37 years of our independence has thought about and taken any lead to upgrade the standard and merit of the pharmacy services for the health keeping interests of the people through the placement of graduate and postgraduate Pharmacists in our hospitals.
