Bangladesh is a rapidly developing economy. The demand for the health care services has been rapidly expanding with increased population. To meet this increasing demand, the activities and expenditures of the Health, Population and Nutrition (HPN) sector has been expanding every year. To provide healthcare services to the increasing population efficiently with widening coverage and maximum possible equity, the use of knowledge of Health Economics is inevitable. I sincerely hope, the IHE under Dhaka University being endowed with excellent professionals will come up to meet this challenge of the sector.

I wish the missionof IHE a great success.
