The Health Minister has no records on the number of specialist doctors and nurses in the country, Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena said.
The Minister said five months ago he requested Ministry officials to produce data in this regard, which has still not been done. Minister Sirisena said the Health Ministry has several IT specialists, resources and other requirements.
Workshops, seminars and conferences on new discoveries, advancement of science and ICT are organized by the Ministry. "But the situation within the Ministry in connection with ICT is not satisfactory," he said.
