The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) yesterday said it would launch a countrywide strike on 3 August over ten demands, including protesting over the Singapore-Sri Lanka Free Trade Agreement (FTA). 

However, services of the Lady Ridgeway Hospital for Children, Apeksha Hospital Maharagama, De Soysa Maternity Hospital and National Blood Bank would not be affected due to the strike.

GMOA Secretary Dr. Harith Aluthge warned both state and private sector medical services would be disrupted due to the strike.
