All Ceylon Medical Officers Association stated that the National Medicines Regulatory Authority Act, which was recently proposed by the government, does not include a policy to set the price rates for medicine.

The National Medicines Regulatory Authority Act was passed with amendments in the parliament on the 6th of this month with 67 majority votes.

However, the Secretary of the All Ceylon Medical Officers Association Jayantha Bandara stated that certain persons are trying to match this Regulatory Authority act with Senaka Bibile’s National Drug Policy.
