In 2016, the ICRC continued to respond to the most urgent needs of the vulnerable households and communities affected by incidents of violence or other situations in Bangladesh, working together with the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (BDRCS).

Notably, in the Chittagong Hill Tracts, the ICRC supported vulnerable households among all ethnic communities with livelihood and water-related interventions, while in Cox's Bazar it ensured improved health care to the refugees from Myanmar and vulnerable residents. Elsewhere, the response included ad-hoc assistance to communities affected by incidents of inter-communal or other violence, support to emergency preparedness and response, assistance to migrants and detainees in restoring contact with their families, and help to people with physical disabilities to receive rehabilitation services from the ICRC-supported centers.
