Sri Lanka Clean Water Projects

Background

No. of Chronic Kidney Disease patients by area

In Sri Lanka, around 66% of the population depends on local sources such as wells, hand pump tube wells, small scale rural water supply schemes, rain water harvesting tanks and surface water bodies irrigation tanks, canals, streams and springs for their drinking water. The recent increase in the number of persons suffering from renal disease is one of the major health problems in Sri Lanka. Since 1994, a new form of Chronic Kidney Disease, known as CKDu, has been identified in Sri Lanka, which has causes that are not yet understood. According to the Annual Health Bulletin 2005, the hospital mortality rate for diseases of urinary system (which includes kidney diseases) doubled during the period 1980-2005, from 3.1 to 6.5 deaths per 100,000 persons. At the national level, such diseases were the 11th leading cause of hospital deaths in 2005.

In Feb 2016, Sis Lim Shu Yin proposed to the FFM committee to undertake the Reverse Osmosis Project for the Sri Lanka.
