The government has launched a call centre to give health information to the people across Bangladesh.

Health and Family Welfare Minister Mohammed Nasim on Sunday formally opened a number, 16263, calling which people can get advice round the clock.

The centre will also receive complaints against public and private hospitals and clinics.

Additional Director General for Health Prof Abul Kalam Azad, who also oversees the e-health services, briefed journalists on the service.

He said such services could also be availed of on the website 16263.dghs.gov.bd, on Facebook facebook.com/shastobatayon, by emailThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and by SMS 008801511316263.
