Book launch: Bangladesh at 50: Advances in Health
The McGill School of Population and Global Health and McGill Global Health Programs are thrilled to invite you to a special book launch event featuring Dr. Ahmed Mushtaque Raza Chowdhury, a distinguished public health expert and former Vice Chair of BRAC, the world's largest non-governmental organization.
Currently, Dr. Chowdhury serves as a Visiting Scholar at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, USA and holds the position of Clinical Professor of Population and Family Health at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health in New York.
Join us for an illuminating discussion as Dr. Chowdhury delves into Bangladesh's phenomenal health journey and discusses his recent book, "50 Years of Bangladesh: Advances in Health." This monumental work, published in association with Bangladesh Health Watch, offers a comprehensive overview of Bangladesh's incredible progress in healthcare since its independence.
As well, we look forward to welcoming His Excellency Dr. Khalilur Rahman, High Commissioner of Bangladesh in Canada, as the Chief Guest of the program.
