Bangladesh is an over populated country of which 46% are children. Health facilities for these vast numbers are absolutely meagre, particularly in Chittagong. On 31st December, 1979 in the International Year of Children, a group of social workers of Chittagong under the leadership of Dr. A.F.M Yusuf, a renowned Physician, started the hospital in an unfinished and dilapidated abandoned Central Govt. Employees Hospital building at Agrabad. In 1979, the Out-patient Department (OPD) was opened to provide free medical treatment for the children and thus, the Journey started to establish a full-fledged children Hospital in Chittagong. So, the Chittagong Shishu Hospital came into being in 1979 which has been registered under the Directorate General of social welfare, Govt. of Peoples Republic of Bangladesh. In 1985, the Indoor medical service started its functioning with 10 beds to provide free treatment for the poor children and gradually different departments are added with the out-door and in-door services. In 2024, with addition of all services it is named as 899 bedded "Chattagram Maa-Shishu O General Hospital".

Chattagram Maa-O-Shishu Hospital is a non-profitable, non-political and non-Government organization which is run by public charity. People from all walks of life home and abroad, specially the people of Chittagong have great contribution to keep it rolling ahead for the prosperity and development of this organization. Following the constitution of Chattagram Maa-O-Shishu Hospital, the election is held in every three years to elect a 22-members Executive Committee by nearly ten thousand above life members. The Executive Committee/Trustee Board is sub-grouped to distribute the various functions of the hospital. Life members are the main driving force.

The hospital has been running with the donated funds collected from the philanthropists, industrialists and other organizations of home and abroad in the form of Zakat, Donations, Life Members fees and the profit earning from Fixed Deposits in Banks in addition to its own revenue earning sources.
