In Appreciation

Dr Chesmal Siriwardhana (MD, MSc, PhD)



It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing away of
our APSL colleague and friend, Dr Chesmal Siriwardhana,
in the early hours of Sunday (09th ) morning, in London.
At the time of his untimely demise, Chesmal was one of the Vice Presidents of
the Association of Professional Sri Lankans in the UK (APSL),
and was serving as an Associate Professor at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

He was a long standing member of APSL and an active contributor to
the Association, from the day he joined rendering his voluntary services
to APSL's activities in the UK and in Sri Lanka. He was appointed to the
APSL Executive Committee in 2012. Since then he functioned as the Editor
of the APSL Newsletter "The Professional". He was also instrumental
in developing the APSL Young Professionals Events, in which he facilitated
the young Sri Lankan professionals in the UK to engage in networking and knowledge exchange.
He ably led a team of young professionals in the executive committee to organise these events.

In his still relatively early professional carrier, Chesmal's achievements
and contributions were exemplary. Following his school education at
Royal College, Colombo, Sri Lanka, Chesmal obtained degrees of
Doctor of Medicine (MD) from Peoples' Friendship University of
Russia and Vitebski Dzjaržauny Medycynski Universitet.

He obtained his Master of Science (MSc) in Psychiatric Research,
Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, and Doctor of
Philosophy (PhD) from the same institution. Chesmal was a Senior Lecturer
in Public Health at Angila Ruskin University prior to his appointment
as an Associate Professor at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).

Chesmal was instrumental in founding the Global Public Health,
Migration & Ethics Research Group at Anglia Ruskin University,
and was also a founding Co-Chair of Migration Health &
Development Initiative (MHADI). In addition to his teaching
contributions at LSHTM, he was involved in a number of international
capacity building initiatives, including qualitative health research
courses in Sri Lanka/ South Asia and curriculum development and guest
lecturing for a MSc course in Public Health Management in six Eastern
Mediterranean universities across Palestine, Jordan and Tunisia.

Chesmal's research interest included global mental health, psychiatric
epidemiology, migration mental health (forced and labour migration),
enhancing primary care, resilience research, bioethics and humanitarian/disaster
research ethics. He conducted mental health research in low- and middle-income countries
(LAMIC) including low-resource, conflict/post-conflict settings of Sri Lanka.
He was successful in obtaining research grants from several funding bodies and
published several refereed research publications. He was an active science communicator.

Chesmal's beloved parents, family and friends have lost their close loved one.
Sri Lanka and the humanity had lost a young, intelligent and a highly talented
kind person with a bright career ahead of him. APSL has lost one of its active
and energetic members. APSL was fortunate to have Dr Chesmal Sriwardhana as a
very valuable member, and his services rendered will be remembered with much appreciation.

We offer our sincere deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to his parents, family and friends.

May he attain the blissful peace of Nibbana.
