Healthy Environment for a Healthy Society
As for long-term programs on social and environmental development, BDMS focuses on the promotion of our environment to bring about a healthy society. BDMS regularly conducts trainings and works with the local population to promote a healthy community. BDMS maintains strong community relations in neighboring areas, and provides health care knowledge and health-related research through traditional and online media.

Opportunities for People with Disabilities
BDMS has become a major employer of the people with disabilities. This has set an example within the private business sector to find disability solutions in a sustainable manner. What people with disabilities need, apart from education, is an opportunity to enjoy a life with dignity. This is only possible when their society gives them equal job opportunities.
