PHIs to withdraw from COVID-19, election activities

Public Health Inspectors (PHI) have decided to withdraw from COVID-19 related work and election related activities from 29 June.

The PHI Union of Sri Lanka said the decision was taken as some demands put forward by the PHIs to the Health Ministry had not been met.

The union said that PHI officers will also withdraw from dengue and other communicable disease related activities.

PHI Union President Upul Rohana said that he had written to the Ministry of Health on 10 June warning of trade union action if their demands are not met.

He said that the Minister of Health Pavithra Wanniarachchi had later given an assurance that the demands of the PHIs will be met by 28 June.

However, with no sign a solution, the PHIs have decided to withdraw from COVID-19 related work from 29 June.

The PHIs have also decided to completely boycott election related work and dengue and other communicable disease related activities. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. We understand your frustration and rightful actions planned. Please do not stay away from public health matters due to the ‘good-for-nothing politicians’ ‘ inability to find solutions to problems the poor government servants and majority of the citizens are facing & having to go through.
    The best is to stay away from election duties at the election which no one but the ‘Jarapaksa Fraudsters’ wanted for them to stay out of (hell) prison. At least now you all know what the truth of the matter is and give them what they deserve on the 4th of August.
