In a groundbreaking initiative, the country’s very first fully fledged free pre-hospital care ambulance service numbering a collective of 88 state-of-the-art fully equipped vehicles was flagged off at Galle Face Green today. To be operated initially in the Southern province with the service rolled out into the Western Province within a fortnight, the ambulance service is trailblazing on many fronts.

Under the direct intervention of Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, this is the first time India has presented an outright grant of US $7.6 Mn to Sri Lanka to uplift and improve medical facilities in the country on this front.
