‘In the Best Interest of Every Child’

Dr. Hiranthi Wijemanne who is well known for her role at UNICEF Sri Lanka as a national professional for 27 years contributing her expertise to many children related projects pre/post and during the civil war of Sri Lanka has launched her autobiography.

Titled as “In the best interest of every child” tells us about the relentless pursuit of her journey to give every child the best possible healthcare in Sri Lanka, how they achieved remarkable healthcare milestones during the peak of the war, her international experience serving at the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in Geneva and many inspiring real-life stories.

“When asked about the inspiration behind the book she shared, “In today’s world, particularly in the international sphere, there appear to be subtle efforts to bully poorer and less developed countries like Sri Lanka, by some well to do western nations. This is a growing phenomenon of people passing judgment on countries like Sri Lanka with no real knowledge of the country or its people. This is why I decided that the truth must prevail.

“The fact that Sri Lanka successfully won a brutal battle against one of the most dreaded terrorist organisations is a victory of no mean proportion. In addition, as I have articulated, amid a war priority was given to help and support the people of the country, especially families and children, and uphold their best interest.”
