bandhu social welfare society (bsws)

Bandhu Social Welfare Society (BSWS) was formed in 1996 to address concerns of human rights abuse and denial of sexual health rights, and provide a rights-based approach to health and social services for the most stigmatized and vulnerable populations in Bangladesh, in particular kothis/hijras and their partners. It currently provides social and health services to a broad range of sexual minority populations in 21 districts in Bangladesh.
