Challenge

Considering the global burden of disease and an increase in number of kidney patients all over the world as well as in Pakistan, the available resources are not enough to meet the needs of increasing number of patients day by day.

Solution

Most of the hemodialysis units including ours are working to their maximum capacity and still a long list of patients is there that are not able to find a permanent hemodialysis center due to non-availability of slots. Most of such patients unfortunately die or go from emergency to emergency in search of hemodialysis session. All such patients need to be saved and provided treatment timely.

Long-Term Impact

To overcome this problem, and to help the patients in need, we at Fatima Memorial Hospital initiated a Peritoneal Dialysis (home dialysis) program which is giving patients liberty to use an alternate mode of dialysis and to overcome long waiting lists for hemodialysis. In the long run, Fatima Memorial Hospital will be able to treat a large number of patients who do not have any other option.
