Minister Dr. Rajitha Senarathne says, the Ministry of Health will take forward the initiative to regulate various charges at private hospitals.
Dr. Senarathne intends to further the process of granting relief to patients.
Speaking at a ceremony held in the Bandaragama Divisional Secretariat Zone, to distribute school equipment amongst 200 students in the area, the Minister said, children should not be allowed to get used to unhealthy eating habits, as Healthy Food is fundamental in ensuring their good health.
During the short spell of the 51-day ‘caretaker government’, when Mahinda Rajapakse was Premier, the tax on sugary drinks was reduced!
However, this tax has been re-introduced, in the best interests of protecting the population from diabetes.
