Meanwhile, people are getting better advantages of digital healthcare services from this sector. However, it’s now a demand of time to make this digital healthcare service more dynamic so that people will get them within the shortest possible time very easily.
Women Empowerment is in favor of national development and advancement. We should keep in mind that the half of human resources are women. To properly utilize their talents, thoughts, skills and wisdom, healthcare at affordable level should be ensured at any cost. Because, the empowerment of women will be easier and stronger with the help of digital healthcare in Bangladesh.
