On June 7, the first shipment loaded with additional medical supplies critical for Covid-19 treatment reached Bangladesh by a US military flight.

The US has worked closely with Bangladesh since the beginning of the pandemic contributing more than $84 million to date in development and humanitarian assistance while the recent shipments added over $2 million to the total US government contribution to Bangladesh, said the release.

This support builds on the more than $1 billion in US health assistance the US has given Bangladesh over the past 20 years and underscores the long-term US commitment to ensuring access to quality, lifesaving health services for the people of Bangladesh, said the embassy.
