Jan 19, Colombo: A movement in Sri Lanka will hold a protest campaign this week to demand the government to implement the national drug policy.

The People's Movement for the Rights of Patients (PMRP) has organized the protest on Friday (24) opposite the Fort Railway Station in Colombo.

Several other civic groups will also joined the PMRP in the protest campaign demanding the implementation of the National Medicinal Drugs Policy (NMDP) based on Prof. Senaka Bibile's proposals.

According to the Movement, a comprehensive draft for the drug policy had been approved by the Cabinet in 2005, and the NMDP is in the works for nearly 8 years but its implementation is delayed due to actions of persons with vested interests.

The Movement on Friday will distribute leaflets explaining the urgent need to implement the drug policies and the benefits it would bring to the people.
