New Service Delivery Point opens at the Wathupitiwela BOI Complex
Times are changing and so are the dynamics of Sexual and Reproductive Health service provision...as more women are working and cannot be accessed through traditional home-visits made by Public Health Assistants, coupled with their inability to visit the government clinics due to work commitments, many women needing services are unable to access regular clinics during regular working hours.
This is why FPA Sri Lanka's Workplace Service Delivery programme, particularly in the Industrial Zones is designed and in place to address the needs of this key group of young men and women engaged in work at their convenience.
The opening ceremony took place on the 2nd of April. Gracing this special occasion were members of the National Council and the Technical Advisory Committees, the Senior Management Team together with staff from the Outreach Unit and special invitees; Mr. Lawrance – Executive Director-Zones (BOI), Mr. T.M.D. Thilakarathna - Director-Wathupitiwala, Dr. Indika - MOMCH-RDHS Office, Gampaha, Dr. Sanjeewa - MOH, Attanagalla, HR staff from the 16 factories within the Wathupitiwala BOI, SPHM-Nursing sisters, JMO of the Wathupitiwala Hospital and the Brigadier - National Youth Corps-Wathupitiwala.
The Wathupitiwala Service Delivery Point was established through funding received from Levi Strauss Foundation.
