Fomer president, John Mahama pleads with government to make access to dialysis treatment to every patient affordable

The flag bearer for the leading opposition political party, John Dramani Mahama has fumed out his concerns pertaining to increments in dialysis treatment at the hospital.

In the last few days, there has been more than a hundred per cent increase in the price for dialysis treatment.

This is a situation which is making most patients who need to have dialysis treatment not been able to access it due to financial constraints.

Former president, John Mahama has requested government to take away all taxes and duties which is the major cause of the increments of dialysis treatment.

“Given the opportunity, we shall bring relief to thousands of our citizens suffering from these ailments. Just this week, there was an uproar when the nations premier teaching hospital, Korle Bu announced an increase in charges for dialysis treatment by one hundred per cent which is threatening to put the cost of dialysis out of the reach of many patients and their families.

“The explanation i have read from the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital cites the increase in taxes and duties of materials for dialysis treatment as the main for their decision to hike the price by a hundred percent. As an immediate measure, I call on government to exempt medication and kits for dialysis treatment from taxes and duties to maintain this critical lifeline for patients whose survival depends on these treatments”.
