|| About Us

At the backdrop of grim scenario around the globe in the area of water supply and sanitation resulting in dangerously high incidences of mortality and morbidity, the United Nations General Assembly launched the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (IDWSSD) for the period 1981-1990. The Decade was observed with the mission to help reduce mortality and morbidity caused by water-borne diseases at the grassroots. And to implement the Decade programme in Bangladesh.NGO Forum was established in 1982 as the brainchild of the United Nations Steering Committee in line with the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (IDWSSD). Following a long evolution process, the organization has evolved in the development sector with legal entity in the year 1991. Presently it is involved as the apex networking and service delivery body of NGOs, CBOs and private sector operators in the WASH sector of Bangladesh. In line with the multi-dimensional aspects & challenges in WASH sector, the Forum widened its programmatic domain beyond WASH. Since 2011 the organization is being renamed as the NGO Forum for Public Health. NGO Forum is thus, serving as a national networking and rights-based service delivery organization.
