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.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to engage with a thought leader in global health and gain a deeper understanding of the journey Bangladesh has undertaken in advancing healthcare.

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous Peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg Nations. McGill honours, recognizes, and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous Peoples from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
