The first anniversary of the Suwa Arana, a health journal (tabloid) publication of Lake House was commemorated yesterday under the auspices of the Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne.

The Minister commended the efforts by Lake House in publicizing vital information for the best interest of its readership.

He also requested that the six page publication be increased to 12, adding that the government felt that there was a void of information. "I was recently told that it had taken a patient who required a stent, two years to find out that stents were issued free of charge," he said.

"The Ministry of Health with support of this government has done a lot for its citizens of which the public knows nothing about," The Minister said.

Minister Senaratne said that during the previous regime, government officials were quick to put up cut-outs and posters on every street corner for every minute goal.

"We never resorted to poster campaigns or publicity stunts, and today people ask us, what this government has achieved during these three years," he said. "Now is the time for us to publicise, particularly so for the health sector," the Minister added.

Suwa Arana is a tabloid dedicated to health issues, news, interviews and features, issued free with the Sinhala publication Dinamina.
