There are allegations that war crimes were committed by the Sri Lankan military and the rebel Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (Tamil Tigers) during the Sri Lankan Civil War, particularly during the final months of the Eelam War IV phase in 2009. The alleged war crimes include attacks on civilians and civilian buildings by both sides; executions of combatants and prisoners by both sides; enforced disappearances by the Sri Lankan military and paramilitary groups backed by them; acute shortages of food, medicine, and clean water for civilians trapped in the war zone; and child recruitment by the Tamil Tigers. A panel of experts appointed by United Nations Secretary-General (UNSG) Ban Ki-moon to advise him on the issue of accountability with regard to any alleged violations of international human rights and humanitarian law during the final stages of the civil war found "credible allegations" which, if proven, indicated that war crimes and crimes against humanity were committed by the Sri Lankan ...
View more ,Objectives The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the association between self-perception of body weight, weight loss approaches and measured body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC) among Sri Lankan adults. Methods A nationally representative sample of 600 adults aged =18 years was selected using a multi-stage random cluster sampling technique. An interviewer-administrated questionnaire was used to assess demographic characteristics, body weight perception, abdominal obesity perception and details of weight losing practices. Weight, height and waist circumference (WC) were measured and Asian anthropometric cut-offs for BMI and WC were applied. Results Body weight mis-perception was common among Sri Lankan adults. Two-thirds of overweight males and 44.7% females considered themselves as about right weight, moreover, 4.1% and 7.6% overweight men and women reported themselves as being underweight. Over one third of both male and female obese subjects perceived ...
Sri Lanka was hit by a tsunami in December 2004, causing more than 40,000 deaths and displacing over a million people. Unhealthy behaviors such as the use of alcohol and tobacco, and family violence, seem to be prevalent and increasing in the affected areas, but no reliable data were available to better understand the health conditions and behavioral patterns of people living in tsunami-affected areas. The purpose of this research is to investigate, via a community-based survey, basic behavioral patterns and health conditions among adults in Southern Sri Lanka and to investigate attitudes of people on common behaviors seen in the society.. 5 publications.

Muslims came to the Island in the 7th or 8th centuries. They were trading people. In Sri Lanka first lived in Pettah, particularly Bankshall street in compact houses. Commercial language in Pettah was Tamil as such they got used to speak Tamil. They are quite cordial with Sinhalese and Tamils, Malay and Burger communities who are now relatively small. Presently all of them live cordially in Sri Lanka. Only Tamils had a dissension mainly due to discrimination by the Government. In 1972 Constitution PM introduced Sri prior to Lanka and named it Sri Lanka. Lanka was a term exists from Ravanas time for which Tamil used Ilangai. After this change Jaffna Tamils refused to get down even vehicles with Sri number plates. Refused to use the term Sri Lanka. Hitherto they use Illangai. Anyway now this problem has become staled. Lets bid good bye to the animosity cropped up after the Independence. Now let us assume all the misunderstandings, discriminations are all over. Now let us create a friendly ...
The Indian cricket team toured Sri Lanka from 6 August to 1 September 2015 to play a tour match and three Test matches. On 27 June, Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara said he would retire from international cricket after the second Test of the series. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Sri Lanka Cricket Board confirmed the schedule of Indias tour to Sri Lanka in August to September 2015. The tour started with a three-day warm-up game against Sri Lanka Board Presidents XI, followed by three Test matches. The Test matches were played at Galle, P Sara Oval, and SSC Colombo. The Indian team arrived in Sri Lanka on 4 August 2015. Three different openers for India Shikhar Dhawan (134), Lokesh Rahul (108) and Cheteshwar Pujara (145) made centuries in the series. This was fifth time in Test history. The last happened in 1970 Ashes by John Edrich, Geoff Boycott and Brian Luckhurst for England. India won the three-match series 2-1, and this was the first series win by India in Sri ...
Paper No. 6542 Dated 19-Feb-2020. By Prof. V. Suryanarayan. India has not ratified the 1951 UN Convention on the Status of Refugees nor the 1967 Protocol. Nor has India enacted so far a national refugee law. With the passing of the Amendment to the Citizenship Act different yardsticks are being applied to the refugees in different parts of the country. While the refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan have become entitled to Indian citizenship, the Sri Lankan refugees in Tamil Nadu continue to be treated as illegal immigrants.. The absence of a legal regime does not mean that India is treating the refugees in an inhuman manner. As far as Sri Lankan refugees are concerned, they have been accorded a hearty welcome. They are provided with shelter, free education, and medical care and are permitted to work outside the camps to supplement their income. Many refugee children have excelled in the field of education, but unfortunately since they are not citizens of India they are unable to ...
This project explores issues relating to Sri Lankan migrants working as domestic workers in the Gulf States and other Middle Eastern countries. Despite academic studies and reports on the workplace situation of Sri Lankan migrant domestic workers, and media and human rights organisations reports of physical, mental and sexual abuse of individual women by employers, the absence of systematic evidence relating specifically to health and access to healthcare is a knowledge gap.. This project will systematically collect and analyse evidence in depth about: 1) the gaps in health insurance provision relating to the entire migration process, including in the implementation of existing health insurance schemes in destination countries for this category of low paid migrant workers; 2) implications for their access to healthcare and health status in the entire migration process; 3) policy or practice barriers to effective insurance provision and to ensuring good health and access to social rights for ...

A considerable amount of information on prehistoric culture has been gathered from various areas in Sri Lanka. Batadomba Lena Cave in Kuruwita and Bundala in the southern Sri Lanka are two prehistoric sites which are as old as 40,000 years and 125,000 years respectively. Several caves in the wet, dry and intermediate zones were excavated during the last 70 years and a large amount of evidence has been discovered from these sites, which could be used to explain the prehistoric culture in Sri Lanka. Archaeo-faunal evidence helped to describe the prehistoric man not only as a hunter gatherer but also as a fisherman in the floodplains, rivers and streams. The simplest form of fishing tools made out of bones were discovered from many prehistoric settlements in Sri Lanka, indicating that there existed a gradual development of fishing technique and related activities. In this synthesis, an attempt is made to discuss the probable fishing techniques practised in the prehistoric times in habitats such as ...
Morbidity data are important for planning and evaluation of the health care system in a country. Sri Lanka is endemic for leishmaniasis caused by Leishmania donovani. For several decades, the public health awareness of the leishmaniasis and its impact on health was underestimated. To our knowledge, this is the first study in Sri Lanka to investigate the spatial distribution of leishmaniasis after it has been declared as a notifiable disease from 2008. At the beginning, the disease was mainly concentrated in a few districts, namely Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Hambantota. Over the last decade, it spread out to other districts and number of recorded cases has sharply increased in Sri Lanka.. Although leishmaniasis has been reported from all districts, Anuradhapura, Hambantota, Polonnaruwa, Kurunegala, and Matara were the districts identified with more than 100 new patients annually. Out of them Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Hambatota are situated in the dry zone while Kurunegala and Matara ...

London) - The British government today regrettably allowed an abusive former Tamil Tiger leader who had been in its custody to return to Sri Lanka as a free man, Human Rights Watch said today. Human Rights Watch called on the Sri Lankan government to investigate and prosecute Vinayagamoorthi Muralitharan, known as Colonel Karuna Amman, for war crimes committed as a commander of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and later as head of an anti-LTTE armed group.. Karuna was the top commander of the LTTE in eastern Sri Lanka, and the reputed number two in the LTTE hierarchy until he left to form his own armed group in March 2004. Tamil Tiger forces under Karunas command were directly involved in some of the worst crimes of Sri Lankas ongoing civil war, including torture, summary execution, and use of children as soldiers. Because his armed group fought against the LTTE in recent years, the Sri Lankan government did not prosecute him. "The British government had an alleged war criminal in ...
Sri Lankan Agricultural Nephropathy (SAN), a new form of chronic kidney disease among paddy farmers was first reported in 1994. It has now become the most debilitating public health issue in the dry zone of Sri Lanka. Previous studies showed SAN is a tubulo-interstitial type nephropathy and exposure to arsenic and cadmium may play a role in pathogenesis of the disease. Urine samples of patients with SAN (N = 10) from Padavi-Sripura, a disease endemic area, and from two sets of controls, one from healthy participants (N = 10) from the same endemic area and the other from a non-endemic area (N = 10; Colombo district) were analyzed for 19 heavy metals and for the presence of the pesticide- glyphosate. In both cases and the controls who live in the endemic region, median concentrations of urinary Sb, As, Cd, Co, Pb, Mn, Ni, Ti and V exceed the reference range. With the exception of Mo in patients and Al, Cu, Mo, Se, Ti and Zn in endemic controls, creatinine adjusted values of urinary heavy metals and

Breast Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Sri Lankan women. Germline mutations in the susceptibility genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 in hereditary breast/ovarian cancer, though low in prevalence, are highly penetrant and show geographical variations. There have been only a few reports from Asia on mutations in BRCA1/2 genes and none from Sri Lanka. A total of 130 patients with (N = 66) and without (N = 64) a family history of breast cancer, 70 unaffected individuals with a family history of breast cancer and 40 control subjects were analysed for BRCA1 mutations. All but exon 11 were screened by single strand conformation analysis (SSCP) and heteroduplex analysis. PCR products which showed abnormal patterns in SSCP were sequenced. Exon 11 was directly sequenced. Nineteen sequence variants were found in BRCA1 gene. Two novel deleterious frame-shift mutations; c.3086delT/exon11 (in one patient) and c.5404delG/exon21 (in one patient and two of her family members) were identified. A possibly pathogenic

With out delving too much into political rhetoric I want to focus on geopolitical and security aspect of this.India gave refuge to Tamils of Sri Lanka and refrained from condemnation of Tamil terrorism in Sri Lanka for a long time. Even when it recognised LTTE a terrorist organisation it kept ostracizing Sri Lanka on human rights violations.It even voted against Sri Lanka in UNHRC on implemantation of 13th amendment of Sri Lankan constitution.. India Vs China in Sri Lanka. On the other hand China and Pakistan continued to support Sri Lanka military and morally.Result was Pakistani subs and ships docked in Sri Lanka in 1965 and 1971 wars and in recent times growing influence of China on Sri Lanka.Sri Lankas has become a victim of loan warfare of Chinese and its HAMBANTOTA port has become a diamond in Chinas string of pearls.

As pronounced by the Government in its economic policy statement, Sri Lanka aspires to become a developed country within the next 30-year period. To attain this goal, the statement says, Sri Lanka should have a minimum annual economic growth of 7% over this period. Given an annual population growth of 1%, what it means is that the average income of a Sri Lankan, known as per capita income, will double in every 12-year period. Thus, in 36 years, the countrys per capita income will increase eightfold from the current level of $ 4,000 to $ 32,000. Since the developed country threshold, according the World Banks classifications, is per capita income of about $ 12235, at 6 % annual per capita income growth, Sri Lanka will be able to attain the status of rich country in 15 years or by 2031.. ...

Cervical cancer ranks second among all cancers reported in Sri Lankan women. This study assessed the prevalence and type-distribution of human papillomavirus (HPV) among Sri Lankan women with invasive cervical cancer (ICC) and pre-cancerous lesions. 114 women aged 21 years and above, hospitalized in the National Cancer Institute, Sri Lanka with a diagnosis of ICC or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) 2/3 were prospectively enrolled between October 2009 and September 2010 (110430/NCT01221987). The cervical biopsy or excision specimens collected during routine clinical procedures were subjected to histopathological review. DNA was extracted from samples with a confirmed histological diagnosis and was amplified using polymerase chain reaction and HPV DNA was detected using Enzyme Immuno Assay. HPV positive samples were typed using reverse hybridization Line Probe Assay. Of the cervical samples collected, 93.0% (106/114) had a histologically confirmed diagnosis of either ICC (98/106) or CIN 2/3 (8/106
Sex and Sri Lankas Free Health Policy. Sri Lankas free health policy has meant that we as a country have made great strides in improving the health of our citizens. If we were to compare our free health policy to other countries at a similar development level, the health indicators of Sri Lanka are pretty impressive.. However, we need to understand that although the right policy tools are in place, there are loopholes that have been overlooked or have been difficult to implement due to cultural sensitivity and social stereotypes..

A senior UN official said the civilian death toll from the Sri Lankan governments crushing of the Tamil Tiger insurgency was "unacceptably high" and should be the subject of an official inquiry.. Sir John Holmes, the head of the UN office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs (OCHA), said many thousands of people had died in the final days of the government offensive, and accused the Sri Lankan army of using heavy weapons on a coastal strip that was supposed to have been a no-fire zone.. "When there are allegations of this kind, allegations on both sides, they need to be looked into, they need to be investigated," Holmes said. "We had hoped that the [UN] Human Rights Council would look into this, but as you know they took a different path.". On Wednesday, the council voted in Geneva to uphold a resolution put forward by the Sri Lankan government congratulating it on its military victory, sparking outrage from western countries.. One UN official, who did not wish to be named, noted that ...

Nearly 50 percent of the underground drinking water sources in Anuradhapura district contain more than the approved fluoride content, research conducted by the Dental Surgery Unit of the Anuradhapura Regional Health Directors Office has revealed.. A spokesman for the unit said, 16 MOH divisions in the district were covered by this research programme and only 13,939 or 46.8 of the total 29,777 wells had water suitable for drinking with the average fluoride content.. The average fluoride content permissible in drinking water according to WHO specifications is 0.7 milligrammes of fluoride per one litre.. Excess fluoride in drinking water is harmful for personal health as it gets deposited in tissues. Dr Bandara Wijesinghe who assisted the research work said, excess fluoride in water also caused discolouring of teeth.. According to the research 12,853 wells or 43.2 had less dangerous levels of fluoride which is 0.7 to 2.00 milligrammes per litre while 2,985 wells had dangerous levels of 10 ...

Indian Tamils and Sri Lankan Muslims are both Tamil speaking. So if they felt that there was any overt discrimination against Tamil-speakers their representatives could have very easily caused many Sri Lankan governments to fall by walking out. Even the minor Sri Lankan Tamil parties could have taken a stand if they wanted to, but they chose not to. No doubt they were and are "traitors" to those who sympathise with the LTTE and its ideology. I wonder, perhaps this was one of the reasons why thousands of Muslims were ethnically cleansed from Jaffna, Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu by the "sole representatives" of the Tamil people? Neither of them identified with the separatism and confrontational nature of Jaffna Tamil politicians who did not want the priviledged position of Jaffna Tamils in colonial Sri Lanka to end. You speak as if separatism came about after the incidences you mention above, but Chelvanayagam (who wasnt even born in Sri Lanka) was advocating just that before independence was ...

Species boundaries and patterns of gene flow in Dwarf toads, Duttaphrynus scaber and D. atukoralei, were assessed using mitochondrial DNA markers. Samples from four populations in Sri Lanka (Mihintale, Ampara, Yala, Galle) were analyzed for three mitochondrial gene fragments (16S rRNA, COI and Cyt b) along with four Genbank sequences of 16S rRNA from Indian samples (Thiruvananthapuram, Maharashtra, Mudigere). Phylogenetic trees and haplotype networks were generated, and morphology was assessed. Analyses suggest a single species (Duttaphrynus scaber) with three major clades: a widespread clade shared between India and Northern Sri Lanka, an Eastern and Southeastern Sri Lankan clade (previously referred to as D. atukoralei, the validity of which, however, our analysis disputes), and a distinct Southern wet-zone clade from Galle (referred previously to as D. atukoralei). Duttaphrynus atukoralei (topotypes from Yala, Sri Lanka) is genetically too close to D. scaber (Indian and northern Sri Lankan ...
Impaired attention, visuo-motor coordination, psychomotor speed and response inhibition among patients with cirrhosis and MHE or LGHE may explain the previously reported increased incidence of RA [24]. However, the present study failed to demonstrate increased RA among a cohort of Sri Lankan drivers with cirrhosis and LGHE compared to an age matched healthy control group. Our finding is at variance with the findings of some studies conducted in Western countries.. In a previous study, patients with MHE had impaired driving skills and possible association of MHE with motor vehicle crashes [22]. That study used standard psychometric tests (SPT) or inhibitory control test (ICT) to diagnose MHE. A significantly higher proportion of MHE patients diagnosed using ICT had motor vehicle crashes over the preceding year compared to those without MHE (17 vs. 0 %). Interestingly, SPT did not differentiate between those with/without a history of crashes [22]. Furthermore, patients with MHE followed up ...
