Telangana Government Comes Up With A New Initiative – Sets Up Free Dialysis Centres For The Poor!


Another step towards improvising healthcare. In a major initiative in the public health care, Telangana Government on Friday launched the first free dialysis centre, set up in Siddipet. It was inaugurated by irrigation minister T. Harish Rao. This is a major boon to poor patients suffering from kidney related problems.

These PPP (Public Private Partnership) dialysis centres will come up at 39 government hospitals and a total of 73 units with single used filters will be made available. All of the patients suffering from Kidney related disorders and having Aarogya Sri Health cards could undergo dialysis without any payment. This healthcare scheme is also going to be made available in private hospitals as well. The government would pay Rs.1,325per dialysis to the private agencies setting this up. With the new facility in Siddipet, the Minister said they would provide free treatment to 20 patients each day and each of five dialysis units would provide dialysis to four patients, each unit would function for 16 hours a day.

The single used dialysis system would prevent the spreading of infections and is better than the reusable ones. This is definitely a revolutionary step taken by the government as it helps saving the lives of a lot of patients who are poor and helpless. A lot of patients expressed their happiness on the inauguration of this. It not only offers them it for free but establishing it in several parts of the state reduces the efforts of travelling as well. They expressed their gratitude to the government for taking an initiative regarding this plight of the poor.
This scheme not only brought a lot of families out of distress, but also stands as an example for them working pro-society. Kudos to our ministers for coming up with something so considerate!
