Bribing for Bangladesh healthcare

Patients often need to grease palms to get medical treatment at Dhaka hospital.

    The Dhaka Medical College Hospital in Bangladesh treats more than two million patients a year.

    It claims to offer free medical treatment to the poor, but using a hidden camera, Al Jazeera has discovered that some patients have to pay bribes to receive any care at all.
