Chemotherapy, a form of cancer treatment that involves the use of drugs to kill cancer cells, is available in Bangladesh. Chemotherapy is typically administered by oncologists, who are medical specialists trained in the treatment of cancer.
In Bangladesh, chemotherapy is available in government hospitals as well as private hospitals and clinics. The cost of chemotherapy varies depending on the type of cancer, the stage of cancer, the drugs used, and the healthcare provider.
The government of Bangladesh has taken steps to increase access to chemotherapy for cancer patients. The government has established the National Institute of Cancer Research and Hospital (NICRH) in Dhaka, which provides chemotherapy treatment and other cancer care services to patients.
In addition, several non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Bangladesh provide support to cancer patients and their families, including access to chemotherapy treatment. One such organization is the Cancer Society of Bangladesh, which offers chemotherapy treatment and other cancer care services to patients.
Overall, while access to chemotherapy in Bangladesh may be limited in some areas, efforts are being made to increase access and improve cancer care services in the country.
