Life Desk  :
The two-day 22nd national conference of the Bangladesh Academy of Family Physicians (BAFP) was held in the BIAM auditorium of the capital recently. National Professor Brig (Rtd) Abdul Malik was attending the conference as chief guest. And CEO of World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA), Prof Garth Manning, was present as a special guest.
Malik said that family physicians and family medicine in health services should be included in national health policy, now it is time to get the right balance of services.  Family physicians or family medicine should be included in national health policy, there is no alternative. This health system is officially recognized in countries like Nepal, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Malaysia etc., established in many European countries.
To make the health service sector suffering from quadruple problems, it is necessary to implement Family Medicine or Family Physicians that are implemented and tested in the developed world. All of us have to come forward.
Special guest Professor Garth Manning, CEO of the World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA), said that we are trying to reach out to health services through family medicine and familial physicians throughout the world; WE hope Bangladesh will also go ahead with health care through this.
The south Asian president of the World Association of Family Physicians (WONCA) and President of Bangladesh Academy of Family Physicians, Prof Kanu Bala said that there is a system called 'GP Referral System' in the developed world, where a specific administrative area is assigned to a certain number of authorized doctors. All persons are already registered. If a person becomes sick, first of all go to the specific physician and go to the lab examination. He treats that person, if necessary, refer to the specialist. Expert doctors will not treat any patient except for reference to General Physician.
The government of Bangladesh launched a community clinic with a visionary plan like GP Referral System. This initiative can be implemented as a beneficial and fruitful program by Family Physicians. In this way, the right health service will reach the doorstep of the common people. In this case, firstly, the concept of Family Medicine / Family Physician / General Practitioner should be popular among medical students and young doctors. In this system, the Bangladesh Academy of Family Physicians is working relentlessly in the existing system and has been running one-year diploma in family medicine at Family Medicine. Initiative of USTC's proposed 3/5-year MD (family medicine) is under progress. In this continuation, today's National Conference and Orientation Course of MRSGP International South Asia Board are going to be held so that special experts from Family Medicine and Family Physicians in different countries have been present.
Dr MD Nurul Islam Bhuiyan, Vice President, BAFP said that family diploma or fellowship of Family Medicine in Bangladesh is not recognized by BMDC. However, we expect the MRSGP International Course to be recognized by BMDC shortly after its requirements.

In the end, it is imperative to implement Family Medicine and Family Physician system in the city and village, to make sure that all the resources, rich and poor, provide real-hearted good health services. People and physicians and government will have to come together in this regard.
Nearly 400 doctors of family medicine and family physicians are participating in the conference from foreign countries and Bangladesh.
