Sri Lanka will empower the health sector through capacity building and leadership in information and communication technology
Description/achievement of initiative

Sri Lanka will empower the health sector through capacity building and leadership in information and communication technology. More specifically, the Government will provide education, training, and assessment to 100,000 members of the work force using a royalty-free open source based technology platform developed by Intel. Sri Lanka will provide training and will certify the 100,000 members of the workforce on information and communication technology by 2015 and also implement a basic electronic health record for children in 5,000 schools that would enable the health sector planners to launch prioritized health programmes by 2015.
