The Sri Lanka College of Paediatricians (SLCP) advocates health policy refinements to improve the quality of care and quality of life provided to children of Sri Lanka.
The College is committed to developing optimal standards and implementing them. When the public and health professionals need more information on issues related to child health we provide guidance through conferences and statements.
Our main focus is on the Sri Lanka Journal of Child Health. It is a quarterly published, peer-reviewed, indexed, free full-text access enabled publication. It is published on a CC-By Creative Common licence.
We communicate our activities and fearlessly address any concerns through the media in a timely manner to achieve our objectives. Over the years we have developed good and mutually beneficial relationships with all forms of media. These efforts have always been impartial and transparent.
Our current policy activities focus on:-
- Improving newborn care
- Promotion of sub-speciality training
- Establishing the discipline of adolescent medicine
- Promotion of community paediatrics
- Raising awareness on a myriad of issues related to child protection
- Establishing databases and
- developing interfaces for interaction with the public and professionals through the worldwide web
We prepared guidelines a few years ago collaboration with Ministry of Health Sri Lanka. We have formulated new committees to update them.
We have prepared Standard Treatment Protocols (STPs) and once the sub-specialists, experts and paediatricians with a special interest in recognised specific fields agree with the contents, we will publish them.
