An allocation of Tk 32,731 crore has been proposed for the Health and Family Welfare sector in the proposed budget for the 2021-22 fiscal year – which is Tk 3,484 more than the last fiscal year. Last year, the allocation for this sector was Tk 29,274 crore – which was 5.2 percent of the total budget.

The allocation in the Health and Family Welfare sector is proposed on a priority basis considering the measures taken to combat coronavirus.

Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal said this while presenting the proposed budget of Tk 6,3,681 crore in the Jaitya Sangsad on Thursday.

In the proposed budget for this year, the amount allocated for Health and Family Welfare is 4.71 percent.
