Health Services get new DG

Update : 24 Feb 2014, 07:38 PM

Prof Din Md Nurul Hoque, director of National Institute of Ophthalmology Hospital, has been appointed as the new Director General of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

On the other hand, the incumbent DG of the DGHS Prof Khondokar Md Sifayetullah was made the OSD (Officer on Special Duty).

A circular was issued yesterday in this regard.

Asked about the transfer, MM Niazuddin, health secretary, said he did not know about this change, adding that the health minister knew the reason well. At one stage of public job, transfer was a regular process, he also said.

One of the high officials of the health ministry, seeking anonymity, told the Dhaka Tribune that current DG was not “physically fit” to run such a big administration.

Despite several attempts over mobile phone, Health Minister Mohammed Nasim could not be reached for his comments in this regard.

Sources said a few more transfer orders of high officials of the DGHS would be issued within a short time.
