A group of Mid Wives staged a 2 hours long protest today in front of Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena’s office, against offering midwifery course to All Island Nurses Federation.

The Federation’s executive member K. Swarnapali expressing her views to our news team stated that they are protesting against the decision taken by the Health Ministry.

The Ministry appointed an intellectual committee when the issue cropped up, however, Government Midwife Services Association stated that this decision has been taken by Health authorities prior to receiving the recommendations of the intellectual committee.

The association is staging an island-wide protest against the decision.

The Federation’s executive member K. Swarnapali further stated that field duties have been halted due to the protests.
