Background

About 10 million people suffer from various kidney related diseases in Pakistan. Basic reason for abundance of kidney related diseases in Pakistan is poor health system which includes lack of awareness and treatment of diseases like diabetes, hypertension and kidney stones etc. Which are major causes of kidney failure. There is a Lack of dialysis treatment facilities in the government hospitals with long waiting time. Most of patients requiring dialysis treatment die within few months-year due to the poor quality of dialysis in public hospitals. Dialysis in the private sector is unaffordable for most poor. Recognizing the need for specialized kidney hospitals in the rural areas of Pakistan, the Pakistan Welfare Society (PWS) envisioned the Pakistan Kidney Center, the first charity kidney hospital in the area of Abbottabad-Hazara Division of KPK province.

As one of the leading kidney diseases treatment centre in Pakistan, we are on a mission to save kidneys and save lives. Kidney diseases are ruining the lives of millions of people across the country. Let’s join hands to stop it, now.

Every year, 20,000 people die due to kidney failure. To help the patients, Pakistan Kidney Centre was founded in 2015 under the umbrella of the Pakistan Welfare Society trust. Patient welfare society (PWS) UK joined hands to support PKC in 2016.

As kidney failure is rising each year, we are more essential than ever. Only early diagnosis and proper treatment can help patients to avoid chronic kidney diseases and live a normal life. That’s what we are striving for.

We are committed to providing state-of-the-art medical care to kidney patients, especially those who need it the most. Together with our valuable donors, we are providing free OPD services, Renal dialysis, kidney stones treatment including surgeries, lab examinations, digital x-ray services, and medicines without any charges to 70% of our patients, with our highly qualified Nephrologists, Urologist and modern facilities.
