[TamilNet, Thursday, 18 November 2010, 08:34 GMT]
Rural dispensaries in Thiraaymadu, Paalameenmadu, Naavatkudaa, Vavu'natheevu, Koaddaimunai, Maiyilaveddavaanan and Unnichchai in the Batticaloa district have been closed due to acute shortage of physical resources. Some of them are located in the resettled villages, Unnichchai, Mailavedduwan and Vavu'natheevu, Vaakarai, Karadiyanaa'ru and Maavadichchenai rural hospitals in the district are also likely to be closed due to lack of physical resources, medical sources said.

Resettled villagers have been facing hardships to obtain prompt medical services and are facing acute health problems due to the closure of rural dispensaries.

Meanwhile Eastern Provincial Health Minister Mr.M.S.Subair recently said at a meeting held in Colombo and chaired by the Central Health Minister Mr.Maithiripala Sirisena that the Chinese government has come forward to uplift the physical resources of the health services.
