The Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and its sub-ordinate agencies of Bangladesh implement development program through sector-wide approach (SWAp). The current SWAp is Health, Population & Nutrition Sector Development Program 2011-16 (HPNSDP 2011-16). The earlier SWAp was named as Health, Nutrition & Population Sector Program 2003-11
(HPNSP 2003-11). The SWAp is implemented through a number of Operational Plans (OPs). The MIS published two year books (Year Book 2008 & Year Book 2009) based on the performance of OPs of DGHS. The Ministry of Health & Family Welfare publishes Annual Program Review each year. Therefore, publication of year book has been discontinued.
