AUSLMAT Medical Mission to Sri Lanka 16th – 30th August 2022
We (AUSLMAT – Sri Lanka Australia Medical Aid Team) are planning our seventeenth Medical Mission to Sri Lanka from the 16th – 30th August 2022. This is a great opportunity for doctors and allied heath professionals interested in contributing to the local health system and for students to get some first-hand experience in healthcare delivery in a developing nation. As you are aware, Sri Lanka is going through an extremely difficult time at the moment, and our support will no doubt be greatly appreciated.
Currently, we have a group of about 10 people interested in joining the trip, including a Cardiologist, Cardiac Surgeon, Endocrinologist, a dentist, a general practitioner and an ED physician from Australia and the UK.
Trip activities include:
Visits to Jaffna, Anuradhapura Teaching Hospital and Rajarata University, Dehiattakandiya base hospital, Peradeniya Teaching hospital, Karapitiya Teaching Hospital (where we will be conducting teaching/ training sessions and workshops).
Free community medical clinics at Dehiattakandiya and Tissamaharama.
Fun activities and sight seeing: Cultural triangle, Kandy, Ella (including the famous Ella to Kandy train ride) Yala wildlife sanctuary, Tissamaharama beaches, Galle Fort, turtle hatchery, Udawalawe national park, Ayurvedic health centre.
PS: Hotel bookings, meals and local transport organized by Jetwing Travels. USD 1,600 for double room occupancy, USD 2,500 for single room occupancy. Fuel supply for this trip is guaranteed. Cost excludes airfares.
