COLOMBO (News 1st) – Sri Lanka's Health Minister instructed officials to place orders for medicines targeting a period of three months, instead of one month, which is the usual process.

Health Minister Keheliya Rambukwella noted that adopting such a process would pave the way to mitigate any shortage of medicines and medical supplies.

The medicine, and medical supplies procurement program is to be implemented under the Indian Credit Line, and the Health Minister has urged to implement the program to make maximum benefit from the ICL.

The Health Ministry in a statement said that the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the United Nations Office for Project Services are expected to provide medicines and medical supplies to Sri Lanka for the next six months.
