Health

The standard of public healthcare in Sri Lanka is mediocre. Avoid government hospitals, such as Colombo General, if possible. If your medical insurance covers it, ask to be taken to a private hospital instead, as these have relatively high standards and English-speaking doctors. Malaria is not an issue in Colombo but is in rural areas. Take precautions if you plan to travel outside the city.
