The DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa said that “Each service provided here will be 100% free and be offered in the best technically advanced hospital. No payment counter and no billing counter will be there. The DSGMC said that they will avail services from corporate houses and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and from those who want to contribute to these initiatives.
As per the Manjinder Singh Sirsa, the aim behind this idea is that over 30% of kidney patients do not have accessibility to medical facilities, either because they are poor or they have sold their asset to cover this cost. Also, he added to his statement that many people are coming from the front to make the desired contributions. Not only this, several governmental bodies and corporate houses are showing interest in funding for such services. So, the facility will be delivered free of cost to patients.
1500+ registrations had received so far after the announcement of the facility till Tuesday afternoon. Kidney dialysis is termed as a process of purifying and filtering the blood using machines. As per the Union Health Ministry, over 2 lakh people are diagnosed with kidney disease in India each year.
However, at approx. 4950 dialysis centres are available in India. Most of them are in the private sector. Each dialysis has an extra expenditure of about Rs 2000. As a result, it cause Rs. 3-4 lakhs annually. Therefore, this idea will be helpful to such people.
