It was good to see that international aid agencies have come forward to meet the humanitarian needs of the Rohingya refugees. However, an often-ignored issue in the refugee camps is women's health. Lack of menstrual hygiene, for example, may lead to deadly diseases; so I think feminine hygiene products, among others, should be distributed in the camps to ensure a healthier environment.
Aid agencies should arrange for better toilet facilities and install tippy taps for the refugees to wash their hands. In addition, they should allocate funds to enable local partners and communities to effectively tackle the ongoing refugee crisis.
That said, the crisis is not for Bangladesh to solve alone, so other countries should also come forward and provide humanitarian assistance.
