This case study highlights the experience of undertaking a priority implementation partnership (PIP) on mainstreaming disaster risk reduction into the planning, design and construction of health facilities in Bangladesh. It shows that planning, design and construction standards need to take hazard resilient factors into consideration to allow the impact of disasters on health facilities to decrease. It assesses the health facility construction in the country and looks for existing entry points for integrating disaster risk reduction within the approval process, site selection and design stage of health facilities, then into the construction, maintenance and assessment of the same.

The documents provides some recommendations and identifies some specific initiatives as future activities. It also links the project with the UNISDR "Safe hospitals" Campaign in the context of the Hyogo Framework for action. The project was implemented by the Disaster Management Bureau (DMB) of the Ministry of Food and Disaster Management (MoFDM) with technical support from Asian Disaster Preparedness Centre (ADPC) and with financial support from Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID).
