Prices of 15 essential drugs and 10 cancer drugs reduced

The prices of 15 essential drugs and 10 cancer drugs have been reduced with immediate effect, the Health Ministry said today.

Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said that the prices of lifesaving antibiotics, diabetes medicine and equipment, medicines for prostate diseases, medicines for asthma and breathing difficulties, painkillers, medicine for neurological diseases have been reduced.

He also said that the price of 10 expensive cancer drugs have also been reduced. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. I am sure Minister Rajitha Seneratne would welcome an in-depth expose of the Sri Lankan health system, and the plight of the hapless people who have to endure it.

    It would provide the Minister with a legitimate reason for spending money in a valiant effort to rectify all the short-comings. It would also provide him with ample opportunity to fill his bank account.

    So, come on Colombo Gazette; send a reporter and photographer to any government hospital and show the public what awaits them; should they have the misfortune of falling ill.

    The Minister needs your assistance.
