CEDAR is the first in Bangladesh to initiate intervention program for preventing HIV/AIDS in particular of truckers (transport workers) community. On behalf of the local NGOs in the country, we are also the first to have been started a web-based fight to corruption and mal-governance. Experience of CEDAR revealed that development is a matter of across-the-board and the process of development should start with holistic approach and integrated way. Besides, all the cross-cutting issues related to any development should be addressed to make it be meaningful and sustainable.
