SLPMA In Brief —
SLPMA members manufacture high quality medicines in factories approved and monitored by the National Medicines Regulatory Authority (NMRA) of Sri Lanka and operating in line with the World Health Organisation’s Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) guidelines. Since 2015 they’ve provided over 80 essential medicines for the government sector through a Guaranteed Buy back scheme, accounting for 24% of medicines used in the government sector, reducing emergency purchases, quality failures and volatile delivery of products that used to be the case earlier.
Currently holding 15% of the local pharmaceuticals market the SLPMA aims to help the country save billions of dollars of annual expenditure on pharmaceutical imports by increasing the production of world-class pharma.
