Coping with COVID-19 in Bangladesh

The report discusses what the LMI segments know, understand, and feel about the COVID-19 outbreak and examines its effect on them. The report also highlights actionable recommendations for policymakers to design suitable interventions that can help the LMI segment cope better in this difficult situation

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.
