What was supposed to be the country’s first pediatric kidney transplant surgery, scheduled to be conducted on Thursday, August 20, 2015 is postponed by a week due to technical issues.
The National Kidney Transplant Center supervised by the Ministry of Health (MoH) rescheduled the transplant to Thursday, August 27. The surgery will take place at the center’s facility in Addis Ababa.
The transplant will be a major health breakthrough for the country.
The Kidney Transplant Centre is built to international standards and is located in the compound of St. Paulos Specialized Hospital. It is being equipped with the necessary materials to carry out life saving procedures.
When it becomes fully operational, the center will have the capacity of performing kidney transplants for about 2,000 people, annually.
Preparations were under way over several months to begin giving full treatment to kidney related diseases. Getting kidney treatment locally remains unaffordable to many people as kidney related diseases are one of the most chronic illnesses affecting Ethiopians.
Despite the lack of reliable data to give a full picture of the spread of kidney diseases in Ethiopia, it can be deduced from the flux of patients that flock to medical centers seeking treatment.
Globally, 97 percent of kidney transplants can be made every month, 93 percent are done at the end of a year, and 83 percent are done every three years.
