It gives me immense pleasure and enormous sense of achievement to welcome you to this site as the Provincial Director of Health Services, Southern Province. This is part of our effort to offer a rich & quality health service to the people in historic Ruhuna.
The cooperation extended by the staff in launching this is laudable and is the main force behind introduction of this web site.
The Western Pattern of Health Services and Medical Education that we inherited from the British Colonial rulers is one of the few factors that have contributed in improving the living standards of Sri Lankans. Sri Lanka is one of few countries that have made huge achievements in Health status with low expenditure on health care services spends less and benefiting best of health care services.
In collaboration with the state, and private sectors and Non Governmental Organizations in Southern Province, every effort is made to ensure an efficient and effective health care services targeting the achievement of Millennium Development Goals.
Hence my sincere wish is to further uplift the standards of the Health services in Southern Province and be the best in Sri Lanka, which demands the commitment & dedication of all stakeholders.
