Paediatric Care Complexes in Karapitiya, Ampara and Jaffna hospitals
Budget Speech para. 138: "Sri Lanka has only 2 specialized children hospitals in the country, the Lady Ridgeway Hospital in Colombo and the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Children's Hospital in Kandy. I note that 9.9 per 1,000 children die each year before celebrating their 5th birthday. The under 5 Child Mortality rate as per the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) was 4 per 1,000, the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) is to bring the under 5 Child Mortality rate to zero. Honourable Speaker, given our commitment to achieve SDGs, I propose to allocate Rs. 1,000 million to establish Specialized Paediatric Care Complexes in Karapitiya, Ampara and Jaffna hospitals."
