Dearth of medical drugs to end soon

Minister Rajitha Senaratne has said that the shortage of medical drugs will be eliminated soon. The Minister pointed out that a shortage of 216 varieties of drugs surfaced due to the political crisis that prevailed in the country during the end of last year.
A discussion was held at the Health Ministry on maintaining activities in Hospitals sans a shortage of drugs. Expressing his views at this discussion, the Minister further said that it had still not been possible to supply certain drugs for hospitals due to the non-implementation of the procurement process during the political crisis that prevailed in the country at the end of last year.
The Health Minister pointed out that during this period not a single tender was operative and no import of drugs had taken place.
