Visit to Dhaka Medical College

As part of the World Child Cancer project, we are expanding the network of hospitals which treat children's cancer in Bangladesh.  I visited Dhaka Medical College Hospital with a team from World Child Cancer to see their facilities and meet with hospital administrators as part of these efforts.  At this hospital there is a children's cancer ward, with 17 beds as well as 4 newly opened paediatric palliative care beds in the palliative care unit!

Spinal tap room.

The ward.  This hospital used to be barracks for the British Army!

Brand new palliative care unit, I'm very jealous.
