The Sri Lankan government has decided to reconstruct four hospitals in the northern Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu districts.These hospitals which were damaged during the war period will be reconstructed with a grant assistance given by United States Pacific Command.
On a proposal made by Maithripala Sirisena, Minister of Health cabinet approval was granted for the development of the Divisional Hospital-Oddusudan in the Mullaitivu District, Base Hospital Mulankavil, Divisional Hospitals in Poonagary and Pallai in Kilinochchi districts
Reconstruction of these hospitals will include construction of maternity ward, ETU, OPD, pediatric wards, consultants’ room and other facilities. The Sri Lankan government will make available a sum of Rs.23 million to meet the expenses of levies.
Expeditious action is being taken by the Government to strengthen the Health Services in the Northern Province which were not functioning well during the last three decades due to the conflict situation. (Source:

    Good news. Let the Int'l Community and the Tamils focus on this and other development work being carried out instead of what happened in the past.

    Does some country have to give a grant or aid to do such type of development work in tamil areas? Why isnt the same magnitude of making ports, highways, airports and hotels in the south not happening in the north, specifically as an act of recocilliation towards the tamils from a government that is predominantly sinhalese?

    Even our ex president Chandrika reconstructed the hospital at Kilinodchi, having known that the LTTE tigers too could be treated there
