Nearly fifty percent of populations of our society are women. Now a day, it is a global commitment from modern civilization to improve women’s life. Healthcare is a basic right of all human being. Regarding these issues, a developing country like Bangladesh till have far way to go to fulfill these social and humanitarian commitment. Scarcity of quality doctor’s especially female doctors is a great obstacle to achieve this goal in our country. Government alone cannot effort this challenge. With such a realization, two private companies namely, Holy Land Private ltd and Sylhet Education Ltd. combined under the common name of “Holy Sylhet Holding ltd” to develop the health infrastructure and quality health professionals needed for proper health and education services. Thus, the Sylhet women’s medical college and Hospital is a output of patriotic and visionary efforts of Holy Sylhet Holding Ltd. .
