The Nursing Associations have raised objections to the P.B. Jayasundara Committee recommendations to provide midwifery training only to the nurses who are attached to maternity hospitals and maternity units.

The Nurses Unions opined that the recommendations have ignored the rights of the nursing service.

The Health Ministry decided recently to provide midwifery training to nurses but the family health workers raised grave objections to the ministry decision.

Nurses unions as well as family health workers resorted to intermittent trade union actions during the last few months.

Later the Health Ministry appointed a committee presided by Finance Ministry Secretary Dr. P.B. Jayasundera.

Health Ministry Secretary Sudharma Karunarathna and Additional Secretary V.P. Somarathna appointed as other members of the Committee.

The Committee recommendations were submitted to the Cabinet recently.

The Public Service United Nurses Union, the Government Nurses union and the All Ceylon Nurses Officers Association said that they would never accept the committee recommendations.

However Government Family Health Service Officers Association President Devika Kodituwakku said the P.B. Jayasundera Committee has given successful recommendations to the midwifery training issue.
