Sri Lanka bans reps from state institutions

Sri Lanka bans marketing representatives of private pharmaceutical companies to operate in government medical institutions

Sri Lanka's Ministry of Health has issued a circular prohibiting marketing representatives of private pharmaceutical companies to operate in government medical institutions.

According to ministry sources, marketing representatives will not be allowed to enter government institutions for business purposes from 1 January onwards. The circular holds the head of the institution responsible in case of such entry.

Local media reports have criticised pharmaceutical companies for influencing medical doctors to promote their products, which they say are overpriced.
