Fundamental issues summarized include; health care Policy framework, Fraud & misconduct in Health care segment, Lack of association and participation of private sector (NGO), destitute individuals, Low health care information and deficiency of new modern framework and systems in Health Industry. The suggested long-term effective remedies include; First-rate administration & Governance, registrations and documentation of private segment with application of modern advancements of ICT and internet based surveillance and supervision of all sectors. Bangladesh has a few additional plus points since it manufactures economical and low priced medication. Here, government clinics and health care institutes provide nearly free expert advices, treatment and medication.
