Assam

Agenda:

According to a report by Northeast Now, Dr. Jyotismita Pathak, MD Ashiruktih Foundation said, “Chronic diseases have emerged as a major cause of global morbidity and mortality. Earlier considered to be a health problem only in developed countries, now about 4 out of 5 chronic disease deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries like India. With an increase in the prevalence of diabetes and hypertension, kidney diseases, especially chronic kidney diseases are projected to increase further.”

He said, “Lack of knowledge about disease symptoms, poor health infrastructures and a smaller number of trained specialists has led to a delay in detection and adequate treatment of patients with kidney diseases. This initiative is to bridge this gap and help people to reach out to quality kidney care and knowledge. With this background, we have come forward to launch a toll-free kidney helpline number.”

He further added, “The initiative is a part of the observation of the “World Kidney Day” on 10th March 2022. This toll-free number may be accessed by patients and caretakers or the general public of entire eastern India to bridge the linguistic and geographical barrier while availing treatment or learning about ways to prevent kidney diseases. The helpline will remain operational on all working days during office hours.”
