Moreover, by bringing into effect a system of health insurance, protection of women’s right, preservation of folk culture and art, and by playing a leading role in the formulation of Bangladesh National Drug Policy, the GK has benefited the country in many ways. GK continually revisits its approaches to ensure its effectiveness as a catalyst for positive change. No wonder these services have been recognized by all concerned and GK was honored with many awards, such as – The Independence Day Award in 1978, Magsaysay Award in 1985 and in 1992 Right Livelihood Award from Swedish Parliament.
