It is my honour and privilege to address my dear colleagues and friends through our official website. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the doctors’ community of Bangladesh for showing me such tremendous support and electing me as the Secretary General of Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA).

Promoting the art and science of medicine and improving the public healthcare system in Bangladesh is the ultimate goal of Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA). BMA serves to provide a common platform for the doctors’ community to foster their academic and professional development. We believe in “malice to none, but charity for all”. But with time, the circumstances of medical practice has been changing and is becoming more and more challenging due to the erosion in moral values, social norms, and winds of continuous media scrutiny. The BMA is committed to protecting our beloved fraternity from onslaught of contemporary negative mindset and cynical attitude of the society which is creating a palpable gap between the common people and the doctors. Under the banner of the BMA we, the doctors, should act together to achieve our goals and fulfill our responsibilities. BMA and the doctors’ community had served the people of Bangladesh during our liberation war, during numerous democratic movements and natural calamities, thus setting leading benchmarks for other professional communities. BMA is, and has always been, the epitome of integrity, dedication, and service to the common people of Bangladesh.

I plea for your continuous support to ensure a responsible and vibrant BMA to overcome all the difficulties we could face in the near and distant future. I pledge to commit all my time and effort to represent the doctors’ community in Bangladesh and uphold its dignity in all situations.

Thank you all.

Joy Bangla, Joy Bangabandhu
