From 2005 to 2008, Chevron established three community clinics near our Bibiyana and Moulavi Bazar fields. Those clinics have 86 satellite locations that also provide care. All are part of the nationwide Smiling Sun Franchise Program, which is sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development and Department for International Development and now operated by Pathfinder International, U.S. . More than 100,000 health care services – including lab tests, vaccinations, counselling sessions and more – are provided every year.

Improving Public Health

Chevron sponsors three community health clinics and annual eye-care camps around its project areas of Bibiyana and Moulavi Bazaar. The three Chevron-supported Smiling Sun clinics (in partnership with USAID) provide nearly 108,000 services per year. These clinics provide affordable, quality health care to the community. Shiria Begum, Fulonti Rikmon and Kukila Deb Nath are three women who provide testimonials of the impact of these clinics on their lives.
