dc.description.abstractThe present study is about health discourse in Chittagong Hill Tracts; this research shows how different health intervention programs are conducted in Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh after the peace accord in 1997. This research also revealed how health becomes a development issue in Bangladesh especially in Chittagong Hill Tracts. Here, health discourse means how different agents, both government and non-government organizations, try to establish the authenticity and accuracy of modern medicine where traditional medicine has been ignored and overlooked. Concurrently, it shows how agencies represent indigenous people through different health intervention programs. Furthermore this study revealed how through different health intervention program traditional medicine has been marginalized and replaced by the modern biomedicine. Simultaneously, present research revealed the limitations of different health intervention programs run by government and non-government organizations. The research has also addressed and characterized different perceptions and perspectives from many people who are connected to health intervention programs and traditional health practices in Chittagong Hill Tracts. Therefore, the study is combining and representing the phenomena of modern health practice and traditional health practice in Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh. The present study was carried out in three hill districts in Chittagong Hill Tracts, namely Khagrachari, Rangamati and Bandarban.en_US
