Bangladesh Centre for Human Rights and Development(BCHRD)
The main objective of the BCHRD is to rehabilitate a victim of rape, torture and sexual violence, trafficking to the point that they can be re-integrated back into society. Approaches are both curative and preventative. The unique curative approach used is a multidisciplinary one known as the integrated rehabilitation approach (IRA). This involves professionals including physicians, physiotherapists, psychologists, counselors, lawyers and social workers. The members from these departments meet frequently, know one another’s roles intimately and work as one. One of many recent developments has been the creation of the human resource department (HRD); this department is in charge of cross-training and sharing of information and ideas internally as well as the challenge of training externally. Its long term objective is to create awareness about the basic human rights among the target sectoral groups in order to protect, promote and to ensure respect for and realization of the Universal declaration of the Human Rights and the fundamental provision of rights of Constitution of Bangladesh. As such the organization is registered under social welfare Registration Act, 1961.
