Life Desk :
To spread treatment facility for the kidney patients to the different parts of the country the  Kidney Awareness Monitoring and Prevention Society (KAMPS) on Friday opened  a dialysis center in Madaripur.
Shipping Minister Sajahan Khan formally opened the center as chief guest at Panichattra area of Madaripur.
On the occasion KAMPS organized a seminar on kidney disease, its preventive measures and treatment at  Madaripur Shilpakala Academy auditorium.
Chief Consultant of the Department of Nephrology, Labaid Specialized Hospital, Dhaka, also Chairman of KAMPS, Prof Dr M Samad presided over the inaugural ceremony,  also presented a power point presentation on the kidney diseases, its reasons, symptoms and way of remedy.
While addressing, Shipping Minister said that establishing a dialysis center in Madaripur is really a great initiative by KAMPS, this will help reduce suffering of the kidney patients of Madaripur who, earlier, had to move to Faridpur or Dhaka for getting treatment of Kidney diseases and receiving dialysis care.
"We have to extend all possible cooperation to KAMPS because we have to act to get a dialysis center here because the need is our's. KAMPS provides dialysis care to the patients at a reasonable cost which is very much needed for the poor patients", Minister added.
He suggested KAMPS authority to have a provision of discount for the freedom fighter kidney patients from the spirit to honor the dedication of them in liberating the country.
Sajahan Khan urged the affluent class of people in Madaripur to extend possible cooperation to the KAMPS Kidney and Dialysis center-Madaripur voluntarily so that the center can be a well-equipped one.
Police Super (SP), Sarwar Hossain, Upazila Chairman, Pavilur Rahman Shafiq Khan, Mayor of Madaripur Municipality, Khalid Hossain Yead also addressed the function, among others.
Principal of Kumudini Womens Medical College and Hospital, and also Vice President of KAMPS, Prof Dr Abdul Halim delivered address of welcome on the occasion.
In the keynote speech, Prof Dr MA Samad said, in Bangladesh more than 2 crore of people are affected by kidney disease, the treatment cost of this is very high and even 10 percent of patients do not have the ability to afford the cost so most poor patients loss their lives without treatment whereas its possible to prevent upto 60 percent of this killer disease by raising awareness among people.
He mentioned that there have only about 100 dialysis centers in the country which is very much less in comparison to the huge number of kidney patients. More than 18000 patients get dialysis twice a week. In the private sector of dialysis center, the dialysis cost is very high. It's from Tk 3500 to Tk 5000 and is not affordable for the middle and lower income segment of people. So KAMPS has created opportunity for people to get dialysis at a reasonable cost at its centers.
Speakers opined that treatment facilities for kidney diseases, number of Nephrologists and dialysis centers are very limited in comparison to the growing number of kidney patients in the country.  Moreover, most of the existing facilities is confined in the urban areas. Therefore, the suffering of rural kidney patients knows no bound.
Against this backdrop, country's leading Kidney service providing non-profit and voluntary organization, (KAMPS) has been running it's awareness raising program to prevent the killing kidney disease and providing kidney treatment at a nominal cost.
KAMPS has already been running dialysis service and kidney treatment facilities at different District cities of the country including capital city Dhaka, Tangail and Chandpur aiming to spread dialysis facility upto the remote parts of the country and as part of this initiative, KAMPS has established it's new center at Madaripur.
