A study conducted by the World Bank has found that households in Bangladesh spend around $429 per year in diabetic care.  The monthly diabetic maintenance cost is more than 10% of family income for many. Furthermore, 10% of Diabetic patients reported not taking any antidiabetic medications at all according BMJ Global Health.  

Various studies have also concluded that access to quality care for diabetes and its treatment in Bangladesh was largely restricted by cost and availability. Therefore, in accordance with the theme for this year’s World Diabetes Day- ‘Access to Diabetes Care: If Not Now, Then When?’, Digital Hospital has launched a special offer to assist people in getting the right care needed at very affordable prices. This is just the start of many more such offers to increase the affordability and accessibility of the much-required healthcare services for many. 

Apart from this, many renowned specialist doctors are also available in Digital Hospital App for video consultations. So diabetic and all other patients can easily consult with their required doctors from the comfort of their homes from any part of the country. 

Both medicines and various health devices are available for online order in the Digital Hospital Mart section of the Digital Hospital app. 

All medicines of Digital Hospital are 100% authentic and delivered following strict health guidelines, with pharmacy partners. 

Andrew Smith, Co-founder of Digital Hospital says, "In Bangladesh the annual cost for per person diabetic care is Tk 35,385, and many diabetics cannot afford or access the full medications and supplies they need. Without the right medications and management diabetes can cause complications like loss of sight. We

support the theme of World Diabetes Day 2021: "access for all, if not now, when?" - and hope to democratize access for high quality medications and advice."
