Bangladesh will recruit some 2,654 service providers related to healthcare for the next six months on an outsourcing basis. 

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare permitted the recruitment of several services for 75 hospitals and clinics, and 29 laboratories under it across the country.

The service providers include lab attendants, helps, ward boys, and conservancy workers.

The Health Service Division on Monday forwarded the consent letter of interim recruitment to the director general of Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) signed by the Deputy Secretary (Admin-1) Khandokar Zakir Hossain.

Around 15 public medical college hospitals including Dhaka Medical College Hospital and Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital are in the list.

Moreover, Kurmitola General Hospital, Mugda General Hospital, Kuwait Bangladesh Friendship Government Hospital, Bangladesh Railway Hospital, Maternal and Child Health Training and Research Institute, Lalkuthi in Dhaka, Basundhara Covid Dedicated Hospital, Dhaka South City Corporation Hospital, 53 district, sadar, or general hospitals and 29 laboratories have also been enlisted. 

The order is effective for six months from April 28 and DGHS will purchase the services, or do the interim recruitment on behalf of the government, the letter added.

Harijan community people would be prioritized while outsourcing conservancy workers.

On April 27, the government decided to recruit at least 2,000 doctors and 6,000 nurses within a week in a bid to fight the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The doctors were to be appointed from the merit list of over 7,500 physicians who passed the 39th Bangladesh Civil Service (BCS) examination in 2018. 

Similarly, the government wanted to appoint 6,000 new nurses who were found eligible in the recruitment exam held by Bangladesh Public Service Commission’s (BPSC) in the same year.
