18 May 2011: Sri Lanka's Public Health Inspectors: Lessons for Low-Income Countries

Sri Lanka has a low-cost and low-tech approach to reducing exposure to communicable diseases. This hinges on the use of Public Health Inspectors charged with inter alia assuring environmental sanitation, vector control, water safety and food safety, outbreak control, school health, and disease-specific programs. This seminar will focus on the strengths of this system, which has lessons for other low-income countries. It will also highlight organizational changes that would help these grassroots health staff function more effectively in Sri Lanka.
