Only 2 Tamil nurses in latest batch of 110 to serve Northern Province

Only two Tamil nurses were appointed to serve the Northern Province in the latest batch of appointments.

Out of 110 nurses appointed to the Northern Province by the Sri Lankan government, 108 were Sinhalese nurses.

When questioned about the hugely disproportionate rates of Sinhalese nurses being appointed to serve a Tamil province, the Northern Province health minister said that there were not enough trained Tamil nurses to appoint.
