Challenge

Sri Lanka is home to 21.9 million people, whose life expectancy at birth is 77 years. 2.8 million population (14%) are diabetic, 63000 suffer from chronic kidney disease, and 6000 from end stage renal disease. In 2021, only 34 kidney transplants were performed.

Solution

DTI Foundation will provide training to a healthcare professional who is willing to promote organ donation and transplantation practices through his/her team. A full TPM Advanced course which will include a 2 weeks internship in a Spanish reference centre. This will benefit the healthcare professional taught, their hospital and team and the local community.

Long-Term Impact

Saving millions of lives. Saving billions of dollars. Using its proven model, DTI empowers its graduates with the critical knowledge needed to dramatically increase organ donations, train local medical experts as well as implement programs that reduce dependence on dialysis (costly, inconvenient and ineffective). Countries implementing DTI solutions as health care policy spare millions of families needless suffering. And governments can better mobilize their precious healthcare resources.
