The COVID-19 pandemic has an indirect effect on essential health and nutrition services (EHNS) in Bangladesh, in terms of provision, coverage, utilization and care-seeking behavior; particularly for reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child and adolescent health (RMNCAH), tuberculosis (TB), and non-communicable diseases (NCD). EHNS delivery have been impacted due to supply and demand side factors, leading to lapses in the delivery of EHNS and the consequent drop in service utilization. Hence a mixed method study has been undertaken by Oxford Policy Management Limited (OPM) in collaboration with dRi to understand the indirect impacts of COVID-19 on EHNS in Bangladesh, with specific focus on RMNCAH together with TB and NCD for provision, coverage, utilization and care-seeking.
