A new hospital for the Rohingya and locals has been inaugurated in Ukhiya

A specialized hospital has been inaugurated at Ukhiya, Cox’s Bazar with collaboration from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The project is funded by the Government of Japan which generously donated USD 4.4 million to improve access to healthcare for the Rohingya refugees and the local people.

An agreement has been reached to build the hospital wall, provide all the necessary equipment and pay the salaries of the staff by the UNHCR.

The name of the new hospital will be ‘Ukhiya Specialized Hospital‘. Specialized doctors are available in this very well-equipped hospital. The hospital is also capable of providing secondary care to patients. This will enable Bangladeshis, who are sheltering Rohingyas, and Rohingya refugees living in nearby camps to get health care.

The hospital will also have outpatient services. There will be surgery, trauma care, eye-dental, physiotherapy and palliative care. At the same time, there will be an around-the-clock emergency service system. There will be state-of-the-art laboratory and diagnostic system facilities.

The following hospital will have virtual telemedicine services. Surgery, orthopaedics and gynaecology services will be provided through telemedicine.

UNHCR confirmed the information in a press release.
