Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals Sector review from BOI Sri Lanka

Today, Sri Lanka's health system is dominated by "Western medicine" covering 85% of the total health requirement. Both the public and private sectors provide healthcare services. Unlike other developing countries, the public healthcare system provides good coverage and is accessible to the majority of people. The public healthcare system meets almost 60% of total healthcare demand.

The private sector meets one half of the demand for out-patient services.
