As per a request made by Mr. Namal Liyanage, Commissioner, Department of Probation and Child Care Services, a discussion was held recently with the Family Health Bureau to discuss on a joint approach for minimizing teenage pregnancies.

The possibility of minimizing child rights violations through an integrated approach of grass-root level healthcare sector officers and of DPCCS was discussed there.

Attention was also directed on the significance and contribution of health sector officers in conducting Case Conferences, a tool used in child rights violations, and the importance of an integrated approach by Divisional –level officers.  

They were also made aware of the special programme conducted for children in Uchchamuni Island, Kalpitiya and requested their support to address some health issues they face.
