An adage goes like ‘Health is the root of all happiness’ resulting in overall socio-economic development of a country. Unfortunately, Bangladesh as a poor country has been experiencing a lot of problems and obstacles in the way of accomplishment of goals and objectives of a healthy society. In spite of having a good infrastructure in health and family welfare sector, the government has not yet been able to deliver qualitative services to the general mass people due to a number of barriers and constraints. It is very difficult to cover and address the vast population with the existing manpower of government health and family planning departments. In this situation the role of NGO as health and family planning service providers is very much important. GUK as a pragmatic NGO believes in total family health development by providing necessary health and family planning services at the door step of the community people. GUK faces a big challenge in ensuring individual household development with micro credit support without ensuring minimal health services to the beneficiaries. Considering the gravity of the situation, GUK started implementing its gigantic primary health care & family planning services program activities in late 2009. The main objective of GUK family health services program is to address the poor and ultra poor targeted beneficiaries living in remote areas with quality care by establishing service centres at community level.

The program activities and services are being delivered at the service delivery centers.
