Abstract

The name of Professor Dulitha Nandanie Fernando (1944-2021) is immortal in the annals of Sri Lankan public health nutrition. Her biggest contribution to nutrition has been her in-depth understanding of research on public health. She was in collaboration with her associate researchers in the Medical Research Institute (MRI) and conducted much research during past 20 years. Even after her retirement, she continued her work with the MRI focussed on improving the nutritional status of the population. Thus, her research achievements are innumerable, and her illustrious career is worthy of emulation. This paper aims to examine the dissemination and implementation of some of the research findings towards improvement of nutrition in Sri Lanka.
