About Us

The State Pharmaceuticals Corporation was established in 1971 under the State Industrial Corporations Act Number 49 of 1957. This far-sighted decision was the result of the report submitted by Prof. Senaka Bible and Dr.S.A. Wickramasinghe report (March 1971) based on an assignment given to them by the then Prime Minister, Mrs. Sirimavo Bandaranaike.

Going by the vision of its founding father Professor Senaka Bibile, the State Pharmaceuticals Corporation (SPC) has at all times striven to provide quality assured drugs at prices that are reasonable in the market. For the past 40 years SPC has been the sole supplier of pharmaceuticals, surgical consumable Items, laboratory chemicals and equipment to all institutions administered by the health ministry.

Our first chairman created a great philosophy and great culture to our organization as well as to the whole Sri Lanka to follow the “Senaka Bibile Drug Policy” regarding the pharmaceuticals. He started using generic names for pharmaceuticals and instructed the suppliers to use generic names in labeling. He has specifically mentioned that when the pharmaceuticals Corporation purchases drugs on tender basis, it is important to ensure the quality of drugs purchased. He suggested that in an ideal situation, the Corporation would it self inspect factories of suppliers and purchased only from those who follow good manufacturing practices. These management practices are still followed by the Corporation.

It has operated up to now as a profitable venture with the largest market share in the industry supplying pharmaceuticals to the nation.

SPC’s national role is to serve Sri Lanka by providing safe, efficacious and high quality medicinal products and health services at affordable prices, while promoting the usage of generic drugs. It’s vision therefore is to be the leading health care organization of the nation.

Our Services

We procure and supply drugs to the Health Ministry and to the private sector market through an open competitive tender procedure.

All expenses incurred in the purchases for the Health Ministry are advanced by the SPC from its own funds and subsequently collected from the Ministry. The SPC receives a service charge of 10% of the cost and freight value of goods for ordering and clearing expenses such as taxes, defense levy, etc. Thus, after deducting clearance charges, stamp fees, etc. SPC retains only about 1% for its services.

We distribute drugs to the general public through our islandwide network of Rajya Osu Salas, Franchise Osu Salas and distributors.

Our main aim has been to render the best possible service to the public, making the SPC a profit-making and a sustainable government enterprise. We distribute quality assured products at affordable prices. Our qualified and well trained pharmacists and experienced sales staff maintain the highest standards in pharmacy and dispensing practice. For example, Rajya Osu Sala at Colombo 7, operates 24 hours a day and 365 days of the year, without a single complaint regarding dispensing being recorded in the last year (about 275,000 prescriptions were dispensed last year).

We produce “Jeevanee”, a life-saver, at our Oral Rehydration Salt Unit. The product is based on a formula approved by the WHO and UNICEF.
