Dambulla lacks medicine

People of Dambulla said they cannot find many types of medicine issued by the State Pharmaceuticals Cooperation in the area.

They said many essential drugs are not available from the Dambulla Base Hospital.

Patients, therefore, have to buy medicine from the private sector at high rates.

A state pharmacy outlet in Dambulla, too, lacks essential drugs, they said. The patients then have to buy medicine from the private sector outlets.

They say private channeling centres manage pharmacies in the town.

The people urge the Health Ministry to provide necessary drugs to the state pharmacy in Dambulla so they can buy them at low rates.
