* Boycott looms for Sri Lanka's public health service
Sun, Apr 6, 2014, 11:29 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 06, Colombo: The doctors of Sri Lanka's Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) have decided to boycott public health duties and clinical services starting tomorrow (April 7).

GMOA Chairman Anuruddha Padeniya says the union made this decision since public health services cannot be carried out due to the strike by family health officers (midwives). The family health officers began their strike last week to protest the Ministry of Health providing midwifery training to nurses.

Dr. Padeniya said GMOA supports the cause of the midwives and added that nurses cannot perform duties in labor rooms under medical ordinance. GMOA has called on the Minister of Health to mediate and resolve the issue.
