WHY CHOOSE ASF HOSPITAL

Acid Survivors Foundation (ASF) aims to establish the hospital as a center of excellence in burn care. From the very beginning, ASF attracted a number of local and international surgeons who were willing to dedicate their expertise for these unfortunate women, children and men. In addition to their regular job in other hospitals the local plastic surgeons and their team provide acid survivors with the best plastic surgery available in Bangladesh. In addition to the local surgeons, highly skilled international consultants in the field of reconstructive surgery visit Bangladesh on average once or twice a year to operate the very difficult cases and train their colleagues in Bangladesh.

Since 2001, ASF started collaborating with international surgeons from around the world to come to Bangladesh and work with their Bangladeshi colleagues and develop the capacity of local surgeons. For the last twenty years a number of international plastic surgeons have dedicated their time to performing surgeries and training local surgeons in Bangladesh. To ensure that survivors have access to the best medical treatment many survivors are sent abroad for treatment that require Special attention from international surgeons.

Pressure Garments

Pressure Garment is an important component of a recovering burn patient’s rehabilitation program. The pressure garment production centre was started in 2001 which are running by survivors, training was provided by experts from England, Netherlands and Australia. ASF’s physiotherapists ensure that the quality of pressure garments is maintained. Pressure garments are made of elasticized fabric named Lycra that provides a tight custom fit garment and the garment is used to provide constant and equal pressure to provide compression over the healed burn. This compression minimizes development of scarring and deformity. Pressure garments help the burn heal with the least amount of scarring by pressing and flattening the scars. The tightness of a compression garment also helps stop the itching associated with a healing burn and protect fragile skin.

ASF provide pressure garments to acid and other burn violence patients free of cost. ASF also provide pressure garments to all other patients in reasonably priced from Burn Unit, Dhaka Medical College and Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College & Hospital.
