JDC opens free dialysis centre in Sialkot

SIALKOT: JDC has opened a free dialysis centre in Sialkot, offering free dialysis services, effectively alleviating the financial burden faced by patients.

In strict adherence to international standards, the facility ensures patient safety by adopting one time use equipment policies, thereby maintaining the highest levels of hygiene, according to a statement on Tuesday.

Zafar Abbas, the General Secretary of JDC, set a visionary goal of establishing 50 dialysis centres across Pakistan, and his resolute dedication has seen this vision come to life.

In a country with over 17 million kidney disease patients and limited resources, this initiative addresses a pressing healthcare issue. Dialysis treatment, which typically costs over $3,000 per year per patient, is often financially out of reach for many, making the need for such centres even more vital.
