Wyeth Nutrition range of products will now be marketed in Sri Lanka through George Steuart Health (Pvt) Ltd., the company announced last week.

Wyeth Nutrition, a global leader in child nutrition, has sought representation through the most acclaimed distributors worldwide. The company has now partnered with George Steuart Health to market and distribute its child nutrition products in Sri Lanka; a range which was formerly marketed by George Steuart Health in the late 80’s.

Over the past 100 years, Wyeth Nutrition has focused on enhancing the quality of life of children in the first 1000 days, through high quality, innovative and science-proven nutrition.

“S-26 Gold Progress 3” and “S-26 Gold Promise 4” milk formulae are formulated for children aged 1-3 years and 3-5 respectively. Through scientific research, world- class manufacturing and product safety standards, Wyeth Nutrition aims to deliver scientifically sound solutions that offer parents confidence to help nourish children.

Growing importance of training for nurses taking care of patients with NCDs

Published

on

To keep pace with the rapid expansion and increasing complexity of elderly home healthcare, training needs of home healthcare nurses must be identified and subsequent training programs implemented. English Nursing Care conducts training sessions on a weekly basis covering a variety of care needs for Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) such as diabetes. The World Health Organisation (WHO) record that NCDs are estimated to account for 75% of total deaths in Sri Lanka.

Furthermore, according to the Sri Lankan Ministry of Health “although people are living longer, they live more years suffering from disease and disability, mainly from NCDs; life expectancy at birth in Sri Lanka is 74.9 years but healthy life expectancy at birth is only 67.0 years.” This has a significant impact on quality of life.

English Nursing Care Sri Lanka works towards improving the quality of life of the elderly living with NCD’s by training nurses on the most advanced and developed methodologies brought through years of experience internationally and locally. Being responsible for the well-being of your loved ones is pivotal in the service they provide.
