President's Message

Dear Members of the College of Chemical Pathologists of Sri Lanka(CCPSL),

As we move forward in our collective mission of advancing through challenges, I would like to emphasize the vital role that laboratories play in clinical care and the development of a sustainable quality health system. 

The laboratory is an integral part of the healthcare system, providing essential information for diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of diseases. In today's rapidly changing healthcare landscape, the laboratory faces many challenges, from increasing demands for testing to advances in technology and the need for more personalized medicine.


However, with these challenges comes the opportunity to innovate and adapt. As Chemical Pathologists, we have the expertise to lead the way in the development of laboratory medicine in order to improve patient outcomes and enable more efficient use of healthcare resources.

As we strive to provide the best possible care to our patients, we must also keep in mind the importance of developing a sustainable quality health system. We must work together to develop innovative solutions that improve access to care, reduce costs, and promote health equity.

To achieve these goals, we must continue to collaborate with our colleagues in other healthcare disciplines, as well as with policymakers, community leaders, and patient advocates. We must also embrace new technologies and techniques that can help us to provide better care and improve outcomes for our patients.

CCPSL has always been at the forefront of advancing the field of laboratory medicine in Sri Lanka, and I am committed to ensuring that we continue to lead the way. In the coming year, we will focus on enhancing our education and training programs to ensure that our members are equipped with the latest knowledge and skills. We will also explore opportunities to collaborate with international organizations and experts to broaden our horizons and deepen our understanding of the field.
We must recognize that the laboratory is not just a service provider, but a critical component of a sustainable quality health system. We must advocate for the resources and infrastructure necessary to support high-quality laboratory services, and for policies that promote the integration of laboratory data into clinical decision making.

I express my gratitude to the outgoing President and the council for their hard work and dedication over the past year. I look forward to building on their achievements and working together to achieve our goals.

I would like to reaffirm my commitment to serving the college and the field of Chemical Pathology with dedication, integrity and passion.

In conclusion, let us embrace the challenges ahead with confidence and determination, knowing that we have the expertise and dedication to advance our field and improve healthcare for all Sri Lankans.
