Dec 14, Colombo: Doctors in Sri Lanka's state sector have accused the Health Ministry of delaying the promotion of fresh liquid milk in hospitals.

The Government Medical Officers 'Association (GMOA) has accused officials at the Health Ministry of blocking circulars aimed at promoting the consumption of liquid milk in state hospitals.

Executive Committee member of the GMOA, Dr. Navin de Soysa has said that the Health Ministry's Director of Nutrition and the Health Ministry Secretary had prepared the necessary circulars to be sent to the hospitals.

The circulars had instructed all hospital directors to promote liquid milk instead of milk powder.
