Arsenic contamination in drinking water has been recognized as the serious public health problem in Bangladesh. Thus, MIG is presenting this page for the whole world to know about it. To access the information please click over the item(s) on left panel.

We have been largely motivated by National Institute of Health Sciences, Japan and Global Information Network (GINC) to create this page.
