WHO certifies Sri Lanka malaria-free

Colombo, 5 September 2016: In a remarkable public health achievement, Sri Lanka was today certified by WHO on having eliminated malaria, a life-threatening disease which long affected the island country.

“Sri Lanka’s achievement is truly remarkable. In the mid-20th century it was among the most malaria-affected countries, but now it is malaria-free. This is testament to the courage and vision of its leaders, and signifies the great leaps that can be made when targeted action is taken. It also demonstrates the importance of grass-roots community engagement and a whole-of-society approach when it comes to making dramatic public health gains,” WHO Regional Director, Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, said here.

Over the years, World Health Organization (WHO), in collaboration with the World Bank and other donors, has supported the government’s National Health Development Plan across thematic areas in addressing maternal and child health nutrition, prevention and control of non-communicable diseases and health system improvements as well as support for innovation, results monitoring, project appraisal and capacity-building in the health sector. Continuation of such work would be essential in our effort to further strengthening our national health programmes beyond the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and towards attaining Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
