A Look Back
Behind the august stride of the State Pharmaceuticals Manufacturing Corporation (SPMC), there is a significant history of forethought efforts and a diligently traversed journey.
The foundation of the SPMC was laid by the Bibile Wickramasinghe Report prepared by the late Professor Senaka Bibile and Dr S A Wickramasinghe. The report was the result of an assignment handed to Professor Senaka Bibile and Dr S A Wickramasinghe by then Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranayake for the task of establishing an essential drug manufacturing entity owned and operated by the government of Sri Lanka.
After the report was handed over to then Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranayake in 1971, the government embarked on importing essential medicinal drugs as the first phase of the plan. The second phase was manufacturing a number of selected essential drugs within the country.
In 1985, Ministry of Health prepared a proposal for the establishment of a Formulation Centre for Essential Drugs and it was accepted by the Japan International Corporation Agency (JICA). It was the culmination of the efforts and the fulfillment of the dreams of the founders of this endeavor.
