Grameen Kalyan

In 2010, the ICA Foundation provided an initial donation of 2,500 LNG IUS to Grameen Kalyan, a not-for-profit sister organization of the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh. Grameen Kalyan is a service-delivery organization that aims to provide quality health and family welfare services to rural poor women and families, including those who associate with the Grameen Bank. It operates 51 health clinics throughout the country and also provides community based outreach services linked to four to six clinics.

Grameen Kalyan integrated LNG IUS within its existing method mix available in its network of health clinics and also trained community health workers to skillfully communicate information about all contraceptive methods, identify potential patients, and refer them to health clinics.
