Columbia Professor Seeking Health Transition in Bangladesh

Dr. Mushtaque Chowdhury, professor of clinical population and family health at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and founding dean of BRAC University’s James P. Grant School of Public Health in Bangladesh, has authored research in a Lancet Bangladesh series of papers. “Overall, there has been a shift from the priority of managing infectious diseases to where we are now – a focus on public health programs to mitigate the effects of natural disasters and the burgeoning of non-communicable diseases, especially in the country's urban areas.” Launch of the Lancet series on Bangladesh will be held at the United Nations on January 15.
