Maithripala Sirisena, the Health Minister, instructed the Director General of Health Services, Dr.Agith Mendis, to look to other countries for the necessary drugs even if they are more expensive. The Indian companies involved delayed in supplying the drugs and also supplied them in small quantities through several shipments. Also, the drugs failed quality tests. With a failure in following tender procedures too, there has been a severe shortage in some critically-needed drugs.
