BIRDEM in Palton, Dhaka

The Diabetic Association of Bangladesh, in Bangla Bangladesh Diabetic Somiti (BADAS), was established on 28 February 1956 in Dhaka at the initiative of the late National Professor Dr Mohammad Ibrahim (1911-1989) and a group of social workers, philanthropists, physicians and civil servants. The Association started an out-patient clinic in 1957 in a small semipermanent structure of about 380 sq ft at Segun Bagicha, Dhaka. Over the years, the clinic has turned into a diabetes care and research complex at Shahbag, Dhaka, which, after the demise of Prof (Dr) Md Ibrahim in 1989, has been renamed as the Ibrahim Memorial Diabetes Centre. In addition, BADAS has about 102 health care facilities all over the country.

BADAS is a nonprofit voluntary socio-medical service organization registered with the Ministry of Social Welfare under the Society's Registration Act, 1860. It is run by a 32 member National Council of which 18 members from the life member category and 6 members from the Affiliated Association category are directly elected by the representative life members and Affiliated Association members respectively in the Annual General Meeting (AGM). One-third of the members (ie 6) from the life member category and 2 from the Affiliated Associations retire every year by rotation and election to those one-third posts is held in every Annual General Meeting of the Association. The elected members elect the Office-Bearers of the National Council from the elected members (life member category).

The President, 3 Vice-Presidents, a Secretary General, a Treasurer, a Joint Secretary General, and a Joint Treasurer constitute the Office-Bearers of the Association.

The President, so elected, nominates 5 members from amongst the Vice-chancellors and Professors of Universities in Bangladesh, Heads of National Research Organizations, Heads of Financial Institutions, Heads of Donor Agencies, Heads of Social Welfare Organizations, Heads of Professional bodies and reputed social workers. The Government nominates 3 ex-officio members representing the Ministries of Health and Family Welfare, Social Welfare and Finance. The members nominated by the Government must be in the rank of or above a Joint Secretary.

The National Council meets at least once in a month and reviews the activities of the Association. It takes decisions on policy, budget and finance, planning and development. The executive power of the National Council is vested with the Secretary General who runs the different institutions through respective Board of Management and with the help of the Treasurer and BADAS Secretariat.

The AGM of the last financial year 2012-2013 was held on 9th March 2014 at the premises of Bangladesh Institute of Health Sciences (BIHS), Dhaka. About 78 Life Members and 84 Delegate Members from Affiliated Associations were present in the AGM.

The comprehensive health care delivery to a vast number of diabetic all over the country is well recognized as a unique program of the Diabetic Association of Bangladesh (BADAS). The Association executes this program primarily through its central institute called the Bangladesh Institute of Research & Rehabilitation in Diabetes, Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders (BIRDEM). The Institute has the largest diabetic Out-Patient turnover in the world under a single roof and it has about 700 bed In-Patient hospital with all modern disciplines of medicine. Through its Academy, BIRDEM conducts the largest number of post-graduate medical courses in the private sector. With large number of international collaborations the institute is now widely acclaimed as one of the most advanced research center in the world. This is reflected in the recognition of BIRDEM by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a Collaborating Centre for Research on Prevention and Control of Diabetes. It is the first of its kind outside Europe.
