TGH Activities in Sri Lanka

The peace process in Sri Lanka has opened up the opportunity for the TGH- Sri Lankan team to start their work in the districts of Jaffna in the north and Batticaloa in the east which were affected especially hard by the civil conflict. TGH team members aim at actively supporting the reconstruction and development efforts, providing psychosocial support to individuals and families, and facilitating access to health care services and local health providers. The TGH team is also moving into the capacity building and knowledge transfer phase of the program, forming new partnerships, namely Mental Health Trust in the UK with whom they are collaborating in training Sri Lankan nurses in Sri Lanka and in the UK, and actively producing reports, presentations and publications.
