Abstract :The authors report about health care and consideration of gender in Sri Lanka. The health system has positively provided regional medicine service with a central focus on prevention. As for Primary Health Care service for women, Public Health Midwives have offered care for pregnant women and children and Reproductive Health service to young people across the country under the supervision of Public Health Nursing Sister, assuming a central role of Community health care team. Therefore, the infant mortality has been maintained at a good level that is lower than the world average. Moreover, Well Women Clinics are introduced into family health service, providing women who are 35 years or older with quick inspection for non-infectious diseases. The result of investigation on the use of Well Women Clinics by female employees at the University of Peradeniya has revealed that 13.3% of them used it only once, suggesting the actual situation that the female employees are less aware of Well Women Clinics. Considering the situation that the health system for males have not established compared with women, it is necessary to take measures for it immediately. In order to enable both men and women to spend healthy life, it is necessary to build up a health care service system for which not only the influence by biologic diversity but also the socially formed gender is considered.
