Shortage of drugs debilitates functioning of Adampan hospital

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 20 June 2007, 13:51 GMT]
The functioning of Adamban government hospital located in the LTTE controlled territory in Mannaar district has come to a standstill due to the acute shortage of medical supplies such as drugs allocated for the second quarter, hospital sources said. The hospital has not yet received the consignment for the second quarter that should have been received before the end of April, civil sources said.

First quarter quota of drugs and other medical supplies due to be sent by the end of January had been sent to Adampan hospital at the end of April.

This was due to the delay in giving clearance by the defence ministry, according to hospital sources.

The delay in sending the second quarter supply has been also due to the delay in obtaining the clearance from the defence ministry, civil medical supply sources said.
