Welcome to National Coordinating Committee on Reproductive Health Research


Welcome to the web page of the National Coordinating Committee on Reproductive Health Research of Sri Lanka. This committee acts as a link in receiving support from the Special Programme on Human Reproduction of the World Health Organization. Its role is to plan and build capacity and implement research activities to improve the reproductive health status of the country.

Proceed with our researches


In keeping with the HRP/WHO mission to promote research in reproductive and sexual health, the objective of establishing this website is to

  1. Establish and promote collaborations with centers which play an active role in priority reproductive health areas
  2. To serve at the national level as a resource for the dissemination of knowledge and research findings related to reproductive health.
  3. To maintain a database on ongoing research on Sexual and Reproductive Health. This will help avoid inadvertent duplication of research.

The Faculty of Medicine in Colombo has a long standing association with the World Health Organization (WHO) for training and research in the field of Reproductive Health. When the Committee for Resources for Reproductive Health Research of the WHO had directed the activities of each country towards identification and developing solutions for priority Reproductive Health problems the Faculty organization became actively involved in this process. Capacity building for this purpose was enhanced with the Long term Institutional Development (LID) grants provided to Faculties of Medicine in Colombo and Peradeniya by the Special Programme for Research Development and Research Training of the WHO/HRP section.
