Colombo (LNW): Activists and concerned individuals staged a protest in front of the Ministry of Health in Colombo this (17) afternoon, demanding an improved Health Service, in response to recent events, including a number of fatalities induced by substandard medicines, at the Sector surrounding controversy.
The protesters demanded that the prices of medicines be slashed, the shortcoming of drugs and medical equipment be solved, and the ‘murderous regime resorting to substandard medicines’ be sent home.
The demonstration was organised in a joint effort by many trade unions, civil movements, multi-people organisations, activists and other concerned individuals.
