The 7th and 8th OCC were established in Rangpur and Faridpur Medical College Hospital during the second phase of the project. 

Substantial training including orientation on OCC and DNA lab activities, Psychological Counseling and Staff Capacity Building have been provided to the groups of professionals of ongoing and new OCCs.
