Introduction

BFIRST made their first visit to Dhaka, in Bangladesh, in late 2015. The report from that visit described the basic conditions in Bangladesh, the state of play regarding medical care and treatment, and the basic outline of plastic surgery services. There has been little change in the last 12 months in these areas, and the background briefing material present in the report on the 2015 trip should be read in conjunction with this one. It is worth noting, however, that the security situation in Bangladesh has changed since the last visit. In July 2016, gunmen linked to ISIS attacked a bakery in an upmarket area of Dhaka, and 20 hostages, including 18 foreigners, were killed. As a result of this attack, security concerns have been raised over travel to Dhaka, and some medical charities are at present not visiting the country.
