Diabetic Associatiom of Bangladesh
The Diabetic Association of Bangladesh, in Bangla Bangladesh Diabetic Somiti (BADAS), was established on 28 February 1956 in Dhaka at the initiative of the late National Professor Dr Mohammad Ibrahim (1911-1989) and a group of social workers, philanthropists, physicians and civil servants. The Association started an out-patient clinic in 1957 in a small semipermanent structure of about 380 sq ft at Segun Bagicha, Dhaka. Over the years, the clinic has turned into a diabetes care and research complex at Shahbag, Dhaka, which, after the demise of Prof (Dr) Md Ibrahim in 1989, has been renamed as the Ibrahim Memorial Diabetes Centre. In addition, BADAS has about 102 health care facilities all over the country.
