Mar 02, Colombo: A national symposium on initiation of a timely health development process by the Ministry of Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine will be held under the patronage of the Minister of Health Dr. Rajitha Senaratne at the BMICH on Friday, March 09.
Although every year the Ministry of Health spends around Rs. 100 billion on various projects, information on these projects are not received by the public properly and the gathering will focus on dissemination of the information on health sector progress among the public.
Providing reliable information to the public will build confidence of the Ministry to be able to provide a proper health service to the people. Accordingly, the public will be informed of various health development projects implemented from the year 2015 to date.
Members of Parliament, Chief Ministers and health ministers of the provincial councils, representatives of civil society organizations, village leaders and journalists have been invited for this summit.
According to the reports of World Bank, World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Economic Forum, Sri Lanka's health service has been in the forefront, said Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne.
The Minister of Health said it is of the utmost importance to enlighten Sri Lankans about it.
