Panchakarma Treatment Centre for Trinco hospital

By Sinniah Gurunathan, Trincomalee correspondent

A Panchakarma Treatment Centre was opened last Thursday at the Trincomalee District Ayurveda Hospital, in the village of Kappalthurai, on the Trincomalee-Kandy road. The hospital is administered by the Department of Indigenous Medicine, which comes under the purview of the Eastern Province Health Ministry. The centre was built at a cost of Rs. 10 million.

Funds to build the centre were provided by the North East Community Restoration Development (NECORD) project, which is supported by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

The Panchakarma Treatment Centre will supplement the medical services of the Trincomalee District Ayurveda Hospital, opened two years ago. At present, the hospital is staffed by 13 medical officers. In response to patients’ demand, the hospital offers three kinds of indigenous medicine: Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani.
