The President Maithripala Sirisena says that he expects to appoint at least one nutritionist to each of the Medical Health Officer’s (MOH) divisions in the country.

Speaking at the inauguration of the first Clinical Nutrition Annual Academic Sessions organized by the Sri Lanka Medical Nutrition Association, the President who is also the former Minister of Health, requested the nutritionists to serve the nation when they can, without leaving the country. He also requested the nation’s nutrition professionals to help the government’s efforts to build a healthier nation.

President Sirisena said that he saw the need to further strengthen the health sector especially in rural areas. As a result of the efforts taken to expand the clinical nutrition field in Sri Lanka, a medical team of graduates in Human Nutrition degree is currently working at the state’s teaching hospitals.

The government aims to create specialist doctors in clinical nutrition by 2020.
