Stop Medical Negligence

JWF works with policymakers, governments and human rights advocates around the world to implement laws and policies that support the right of elderly treatment, child healthcare and women’s health. Providing legal assistance against clinical negligence has been initiated by JWF by its project “Stop Medical Negligence”. The project includes considering of a wide range of malpractice in healthcare sector, both in case of private & public, which are thoroughly assessed and taken action on by the JWF accordingly. Since there has been a gradual increase in the population aged 60 and older, a developing country like Bangladesh is unable to cope with the needs and problems of its aged populations. While the government continues its efforts to introduce programs for the elderly, the Justice Watch Foundation aims to play a key role in bringing to the forefront the socioeconomic and health problems of older people in the society at large. We believe that through proper health care of the elderly people of Bangladesh we can help reduce deprivation of their health rights which at times is exploited by the malpractice of hospitals. The old age people face a lot of health issues such as memory loss, bone joint pains, diabetes, blood pressure, arthritis, eye sight problems, tuberculosis, kidney diseases, hearing problems, heart diseases, and much more. Thus proper elder health care with the accurate medicines has to be given to them at the perfect timings. Women have the right to control their own sexuality, fertility, health & well-being. As long as women continue to die or suffer injuries from unsafe abortions, we will advocate for local, national and international laws, policies and treaties that support each woman’s ability to make safe reproductive health choices. Health, privacy and freedom from discrimination have been internationally recognized for decades as basic human rights. Embodied in them is the right to sexual and reproductive health, including the right of access to safe, legal abortion care. Our belief is that women’s lack of access to safe, legal abortion care is both a public health problem and a human rights issue. A woman’s ability to make her own health-care choices and access reproductive health care is inextricably tied to her ability to determine her own future, care for her family and participate in her community. We are dedicated to educating and mobilizing policymakers, health-care providers, nongovernmental organizations and community partners around the world about the importance of preventing unsafe abortion as a matter of public health and human rights. The realization of the “right to health” cannot be achieved through direct services alone; large‐scale and sustainable change requires that we address underlying and systemic factors, including gender inequality, policy barriers and power imbalances that have an impact on health. The goal of our project is to provide advisory help for women, who experience unplanned, unwanted, critical pregnancy so that they could be heard out, understood, would know about support during the period of pregnancy and growing up their child, see the alternatives of abortion and make a well-informed, responsibly considered decision. A woman, who finds out about unplanned pregnancy and at the same time feels insecurity in a relationship with partner, do not receive family support, feels pressure from society, make a hurried abortion as the only way out of her situation. After that, she has to overcome short-term and long-term consequences, which usually are very painful. JWF’s “Stop Medical Negligence” program seeks to improve pregnancy care for low-income women by working with both the public healthcare system and the communities. Through home visits, community meetings, and formation of community health committees, JWF works to engages pregnant mothers and their families to promote utilization of public services for mothers and newborns and improve their knowledge of ante- and post-natal danger signs, maternal nutrition, appropriate child feeding practice, and family planning methods. Our work covers both the rural and urban areas and anyone in need of our help is welcome to visit at any time. Any malpractice faced by a patient by the hospitals or its staff are closely investigated and if need be made accountable by the JWF.
