Abstract

 Natural disasters are common in Sri Lanka which affect a lot of people and displace from their own residence and make them residein temporary shelters with other people. Therefore they are prone to certain health problems including physical, mental and social health aspects. A lot of health camps are conducted to medically manage these health issues faced by the displaced people. Involving medical students in such programmes may be helpful to carry out these programmes effectively.
