The Health Promotion Bureau (HPB) will launch a program to publicise Health Ministry messages and other health messages on social media, Health Department Media Coordinator Janaka Suneth Bandara said.

According to Bandara, the program will commence under the direction of HPB Director Dr. Palitha Karunapema. A training program for health officials was held at the HPB recently with the assistance of Facebook trainers.

Health authorities used social media to publicise Covid-19 prevention messages successfully and achieved significant success. Covid-19 prevention messages reached many people in Sri Lanka, he said. Health officials were educated on the behaviour of social media, technical know-how and marketing, he added.
