A Mission to Digitise Your Affordable Healthcare Journey

In its five years-long journey – both as Telenor Health under Telenor Group and Digital Healthcare Solution under Grameen Telecom Trust – Digital Hospital has provided more than a million doctor consultations, and received more than 16,000 video calls and more than two lakh audio calls from the patients in the last year alone.
In a country of 165 million people, where 64 percent of people live in villages, Dhaka has 43 percent more doctors than total positions available, whereas most divisions have major vacancies.

Bangladesh is also entering the telehealth race, and with millions of our people accessing the internet already, our potential in this sector is at a pragmatic stage of fast growth.
Currently, there are a number of telehealth service providers in the country working on smooth healthc ...
