b) Background of CWFD

Concerned Women for Family Development (CWFD) originally named as Concerned Women for Family Planning (CWFP) is a non-profit, voluntary organization run by the women of Bangladesh for the women of Bangladesh. The organization started its voluntary activities in 1974, registered with Directorate of Social Welfare in 1975 and formal small-scale family planning service delivery program started in January 1976. It was registered with NGO Affairs Bureau in 1981.   

CWFD is a women led organization with the membership of 21 women from different strata of life. Organizational policy is set and major decisions are made by the Governing Body (GB) elected every two years from among the general members. The Executive Director appointed by the GB manages all the projects and organizational activities through managers of different projects and their staffs.

The project activities started with only 5 female staff to cover an area of Dhaka City with 50,000 people. Family planning information was disseminated through face-to-face communication, woman to woman approach and non-clinical services were provided at the doorstep.

Initially,CWFP had a single focus program of family planning. Over time, the organization realized that mere improvement of health status through family planning would not sustain a significant change in women’s life in Bangladesh. Accordingly, CWFD expanded the project activities to cover larger population in Dhaka and other areas of Bangladesh and initiated new programs for women, men, children and adolescents encompassing primary health care, life skill development, creating economic opportunity and empower women against social  injustice, nutrition education, health product marketing, investigate the issues of the large adolescent population, arrange family life education, gender training and knowledge on sexual reproductive health and rights (SRHR), water & sanitation.
