Odelga MED and the Ministry of Health and Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine signed the Supply Contract on 11th October for the supply of 'State of the Art Medical Equipment for the Upgrading of Operating Theatres and Intensive Care Units'. Health Ministry Secretary Janaka Sugathadasa and Odelga MED Managing Director Peter Haag signed the agreement.

Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne said that a lot of foreign investments have been received to develop hospitals in Sri Lanka. This is the highest sum of foreign aid the health sector received so far, he said.

He said that the Government has taken steps to practically provide health services without limiting free health services into name boards.
