Stocks of drugs will be supplied to hospitals without delay. Minister Maithripala Sirisena stressed before pharmacists that the responsibility of the officials in the health sector is to extend fullest cooperation towards the programme.
The Minister said a major responsibility lies with those who are involved with administration of drugs. They should attempt to manage without creating shortages.
The Minister expressed this view at the presentation of appointment letters to 101 pharmacists and five dental technicians who completed their training at a function held in Colombo.
