The Government is to impose a price control on another 27 essential drugs, Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said.
He said that while a price control has already been imposed on 73 essential drugs, a decision has been taken to include another 27 essential drugs to the list.
The Minister said that he faced several obstacles when attempting to reduce the price of essential drugs.
However he says he went ahead with the decision to impose a control price on essential drugs and will do so in future as well. (Colombo Gazette)
