A Hyderabad-based NGO, Bhagwan Mahavir Jain Relief Foundation Trust (BMJRFT), provided dialysis services at subsidized rates of just Rs 300 when the Covid pandemic created havoc for kidney patients. In contrast, the private hospitals doubled their rates for the same.


BMJRFT recently achieved the landmark of conducting 1 Million subsidized dialysis procedures across the State. According to Gautam Cha Jain, a trustee of the organization, many patients called them for dialysis during the pandemic as the private hospitals were charging Rs. 8000 per dialysis session. Jain said that as per the guidelines, Covid recovered dialysis patients were asked to take extra caution during the procedure due to the risk of reinfection as their immunity is already low. This added to the cost of consumables. However, their organization decided to dedicate a 12-bed setup in Ameerpet for this and conducted 1,000 cycles of dialysis for Covid-19 recovered cases.


A 74 -year-old patient said that private hospitals began charging exorbitant rates during the pandemic. He shared that more NGOs like BMJRFT should come up because many like him, who need three sessions per week, were spending up to Rs 12,000 a week in corporate hospitals.


Since 2011, the center has been running and was established first in King Koti District Hospital and was gradually expanded to eight centers with 189 machines, including centers at four associate hospitals, to provide services to more than 1,100 patients in Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
