Speaking out for mental health in the Sundarbans


Future Health Systems is a research consortium working to improve access, affordability and quality of health services for the poor. We are a partnership of leading research institutes from across the globe working in a variety of contexts: in low-income countries (Bangladesh, Uganda), middle-income countries (China, India) and fragile states (Afghanistan) to build resilient health systems for the future. After a successful first five-year phase from 2006-2011 (see our success stories), we are entering a new six-year phase of research, funded mainly by UK aid.

Speaking out for mental health in the Sundarbans

Future Health Systems

A 28 March 2015 article in The Statesman highlights the neglect of mental health needs in the Indian Sundarbans. Research from FHS Partner, the Indian Institute of Health Management Research (IIHMR), shows the alarming number of recorded suicides in this highly insecure region. This does not account for unrecorded deaths by suicide, but does show that two-thirds of registered suicides are amongst women. The article points to a lack of appropriate health services to respond to this growing burden of mental illness.
