In 2011, the International Centre for Diarrheal and Disease Research of Bangladesh (icddr,b) and its partners committed to support 12 hospitals in Bangladesh by implementing 'clinical governance,' a codified system used in many developed countries to improve the standard of clinical practice, and providing key medical supplies. As part of this program, icddr,b will train medical directors and practitioners, establishing protocols for the most commonly diagnosed illnesses. The organization will equip physicians with step-by-step references and ensure a minimum standard of patient care. In addition, AmeriCares and Medshare will provide $7.8 million in medications and consumables to improve patient care. Furthermore, through this commitment, the partners will directly benefit 12 medical directors and over 7,600 members of their clinical staff, while indirectly improving care for 5.4 million patients.
