Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who visited the country to celebrate the World Health Day on April 7, said the reason had such a high-quality health service was due to its free availability and the country's political leadership gave a clear guidance to the health service, reported.

Sri Lanka, which was earlier ranked as a low-income country, had now emerged as a middle-income nation and under this situation, the island's health sector was excellent, Tedros said.
