Sri Lanka

The focus of our work is supporting the ongoing involvement in healthy ageing.

Over the past three years Burnet Institute has collaborated with government and non-government organisations (NGOs) in Sri Lanka to learn lessons about how to strengthen systems to improve vision, health and wellbeing.

An outstanding project - Establishing Elders' in the tea estates of Nuwara Eliya - was one of several strategies in a project that started in 2004 to improve the health and well-being of the elders and foster traditional values of respect in the tea estates of Sri Lanka.
