DILI, 01 september 2022 (TATOLI) – The Ministry of Health (MOH) has decided to transfer the patients with chronic kidney failure to Siloam Hospital in Kupang, Indonesia, for treatments, saying the transportation of the patients was made since the hemodialysis machine at the Guido Valadares National Hospital (HNGV) was broken.

Director General of Health Services Odete Viegas said doctors at HNGV were trying to transfer patients, which in some cases was a difficult process, especially for patients undergoing hemodialysis three times a week.

According to Viegas, the hospital, through its Inti Sumber company, is working to find a solution that allows properly filtered water to improve the situation of patients with less severe kidney conditions.

“This machine will come tomorrow and we can provide treatment to patients,” She explained.

Prime Minister Taur Matan Ruak was concerned about the failure of the hemodialysis machine at the hospital. “I am not aware of the situation with the Minister of Health. When the hemodialysis machine does not work, the patient’s health will be harmed,” complained the Head of Government.

Fabiola Araújo, a patient who depends on hemodialysis treatment, is concerned about this situation and asks the Government to pay attention to the lives of patients because their lives depend on this machine.

“I ask the Ministry of Health to immediately transfer the patients with chronic kidney disease abroad. [For this purpose] our documents are completed”, he warned.

So far the HGNV currently registers 96 patients with renal failure.
