abedMOOC.com started from a brainstorming dinner convened by Japan Ambassador to Dhaka who noticed my father's surveys of Asia Rising begun with Japan 1962 (endorsed by JF Kennedy) had not completely detailed Bangladesh Rural Advancement's  contributions to sustaining humanity and celebrating nation building through women empowerment . Dad's last public birthday party had celebrated launch of Muhammad Yunus Global Social Business Book February 2008 with 40 guests at Royal Automobile Club, St James, London. Father had also paid for sampling 2000 of Yunus books, 10000 dvds (youtube style interviews with all grameen directors during summer 2008 when the Nobel judges opened Yunus Museum in Mirpur, as well as part of launch of 2 Journals by Adam Smith Scholars in Glasgow that had emerged from Yunus making the 250th keynote speech on Adam Smith Moral Sentiments Dec 2008. But Fazle Abed whom my father never got the chance to meet had started 11 years before Yunus Grameen Bank 1983 Ordinance , built health and agricultural foundations, and then schooling -altogether a 5 dimensions approach that was not possible to appreciate from onee dimensional microcreditsummit yunus the clintons, queen Sofia staged annually from 1997. Abed said we could do a Mooc if it was laid out round C for collaborations. He was keen to map how 6  Collabs per the 5 primary sdgs had been integrated through 2 quarters of a century 1972-1995 when rural meant no electricity grids or phones; 1995 when partnering platforms afforded extraordinary leapfrog models that could be designed with mobile networks and solar. It took 16 trips while Abed was alive (and the curiosity og many graduate journalists _ to get this mooc started, and we still try to update it even as Abed left the world in Dec 2019. We welcome corrections and omissions. We have attempted here to map the deepest economic miracle

3.1 3.2 3.3 last mile health services - billion asian women empower 25 year rise in life expectancy 2021-1970

core documents : download 14 pages on why Brac received Gates Global Health Award 2004 

FAZLE ABED WAS DESPERATELY DISAPPOINTED IN 1972- he had built 15000 village homes with his life savings and a matching grant from oxfam rated as best they'd seen when he observed 5 or more young women dying a week typically of famine and 10 or more infants dying  from dehydration

so instead of building any more metavillages he searched for community solutions- where possible sustainable village business he could microfranchise to village mothers

fortunately rice practice alumni of borlaug explained how up to 5 times more local rice production making 2.1 rice business microfranchising an obvious business

3.2 para-health franchise Shasthya Shebika (in 2008 forbes reported 68000 brac para health workers reached 80 million villagers - in effect brac is the lowest cost wholesaler  and through its Shebika retailer of the health products it offers)

abed was introduced to barefoot chinese doctors who in turn wanted to know about 3,1 oral rehydration- bangladesh didn't have china's history of medical studies so instead abed invented a doordash of non prescription medicines - the  para-health franchise owner was assigned 30 village homes to visit weekly- the merchandise brac chose for her


over time the prahealth worker became the most trusted person in each group of 300 families on health and Q&A while her microfranchise delivered positive income ie a sustainable livelihood

Fazle Hasan Abed on Poverty Alleviation in Bangladesh ...

three "miraculously human exchanges" empowered health of billion bangladesh and chinese to rise- more generally its hard to see how asia's two thirds of humans lives rose since 1945 without these leaps forward for sustaining families/communities - see also 

3 from 1980 unicef james grant maximised rural network exchanges of bangladesh, china and any tropical nation whose leaders would listen to miracles of vaccination and oral rehydration - further verification check with unicef current ceo henrietta fore

2 chinese americans at east pakistans cholera lab discover oral rehydration - life saver for over third of infants in any rural tropical place; faze abed is asked to work out howw to train every village mother

1 from a non-chinese person's viewpoint Chairman Mao's cultural revolution did extraordinary things - some cruel/bad? but at least 1 brilliantly good- without the idea of barefoot chinese doctors its hard to see how fazle abed would have helped build bangladesh rural health services connecting 90% of the new nations population

if you have difficulty with this lesson read harvard martha chen's book a quiet revolution - she was employee number 3 at brac and her book is a deep dive into how brac built foundations of its forst 10 years until sir fazle's first wive ayesha died
