Issue National Identity Card number at birth – GMOA

GMOA - Government Medical Officer's Association - Sri Lanka

The Government Medical Officers’ Association requests that a National Identity Card number should be issued at birth.

The statement said the technical committee set up under the chairmanship of the Director General of Health Services to administer COVID-19 vaccines to children has drawn attention to the lack of an ID number when vaccinating children.

The Association also suggested the expert committee appointed to draft a new Constitution to ensure all children are issued a National Identity Card number at birth to ensure their rights and that the identity card be issued to them at the age of 16 or earlier.

The GMOA directed a letter to the President today emphasizing its importance.
