Govt. To Implement National Drug Policy Next Year

Dec 6, 2010 7:35:24 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The government says that a National Drug Regulatory Commission (NDRC) will be set up by next year.

Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena told parliament today (6) that the the National Drug policy founded by Prof. Senaka Bibile will be implemented in 2011.

Sirisena had stated that the government would provide a value oriented health service through the drug policy.

However, the Minister had added that the Senaka Bibile drug policy would be implemented after introducing several amendments to it.

Sirisena had also called on all parliamentarians to support the government’s move, as it would not be easy to implement the drug policy.
