Coping with COVID-19 in Bangladesh

MSC conducted a round of research to understand how the low- and middle-income (LMI) segments cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. We covered five countries—Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Kenya, and Uganda. We spoke to 80 low- and moderate-income households in Bangladesh to examine how this pandemic has affected their lives and know their perspective. Our report, with additional inputs by Stuart Rutherford, offers a glimpse into the community’s challenges, concerns, and new opportunities in these trying times.
