Georgia: The Ministry of Health of Georgia has announced the opening of 10 new dialysis service centers in various regions of the country this year. The new centers are part of the ministry’s program to increase the geographic and accessibility of dialysis services for patients with kidney failure.

Dialysis is a procedure to remove waste products and excess fluid from the blood when the kidneys stop working properly. It often involves diverting blood to a machine to be cleaned.

The new dialysis centers are located in Tsalenjikha, Sagarejo, Dusheti, Akhalkalaki, Kvareli, Tkibuli, Senaki, Martvili, Khulo, and Chiatura. They are fully equipped with modern dialysis machines and staffed by trained medical professionals. Patients in need of hemodialysis can receive the treatment on a daily basis in their cities, without having to travel long distances.

The new dialysis centers were established as a result of cooperation between the ministry and the private sector. The ministry said that the geographical accessibility of dialysis service was particularly important, as previously, patients had to travel to different cities several times a week to undergo the procedure, which affected their health, time, and expenses.

According to the ministry, there are now 49 dialysis centers in the country, serving 2600 patients every day. The ministry launched the program to expand the dialysis service in April 2022, and since then, it has opened new centers in Mestia, Ambrolauri, Lanchkhuti, Kazbegi, and Tianeti. The ministry also plans to open new centers in Kaspi, Tsager, Tsnori, and Dedoplistskaro in the near future.

The ministry said that the expansion of the dialysis service was part of its efforts to improve the quality of life and health outcomes of patients with kidney failure, as well as to align with the international standards and best practices in the field of nephrology.
