The Southeast Asia Tsunami of 2004 and more than two decades of civil conflict left a permanent mark on the country. The damage to health care access has presented enormous challenges.
To help rebuild the health care system, Americares has worked closely with Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Health (MOH) to identify specific infrastructure needs and support rebuilding projects, including the reconstruction, rehabilitation or upgrading of hospitals and health centers. A total of 27 health care facilities were constructed or rehabilitated including village health posts, public health centers and child care centers.
