I do welcome to the website of THS, one of the specialized health service as well as medical education providing sector of TMSS located in the north Bengal of Bangladesh.TMSS is one of the largest developmental organizations in Bangladesh which has been working among the rural people for 30 years. From the practical knowledge, the organization has understood that only the micro-credit or other developmental activities are not sufficient for the rural people’s development. Moreover, without sound health, how it can be possible for a person to work attentively in various levels? Education is also considered as ‘must’ if we like to develop one as human resource. Therefore, only micro-credit is not sufficient to develop a poor without considering health and education issues. Through this Understanding, TMSS has developed an integrated developmental model named HEM (Health, Education and Microfinance) to address all the basic needs of the poor. It has been found that health is considered as a ‘developmental element’ with priority.
We know that TMSS is one of the largest developmental organizations in Bangladesh which has been working among the rural people about 30 years. From the practical knowledge through long journey the organization thinks that without the sound health, how it can be possible for a person to work attentively in various levels? To materialize this theme, TMSS has established its Health Sector and several educational institutions to provide health services as well as to expand medical education. It is found that health remains an integral component of TMSS’s development intervention since its inception in 1980. Gradually, the organization has taken necessary steps to improving the health of the poor and hardcore poor people, especially the women and children in remote rural areas and promoting the capacity of the rural community to deal with health problems.
