CM to Open Liver Transplant Center

The Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Ali Amin Khan Gandapur, has announced plans to establish a liver transplant and bone marrow transplant center in the province. This decision was made during a high-level meeting that included provincial cabinet members, health experts, and officials. The initial liver transplant center will be set up at the Institute of Kidney Diseases in Peshawar, with future plans to relocate the facilities to Khyber Medical University. Additionally, the meeting also discussed plans to establish the Institute of Neurosurgery at Fountain House in Peshawar.

The main objective of these initiatives is to provide accessible liver and bone marrow transplant services to the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, thus eliminating the need for them to seek treatment outside the province. The government also aims to ensure round-the-clock availability of dialysis services in government hospitals equipped with these facilities, and to introduce dialysis services in hospitals that currently lack them. This commitment by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government highlights their dedication to prioritizing the health and well-being of its citizens.

These plans for enhanced healthcare services will have significant implications for the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The establishment of liver and bone marrow transplant centers will provide vital treatment options within the province, saving individuals from the financial burden and inconvenience of seeking medical care elsewhere. Additionally, the availability of 24-hour dialysis services will greatly improve the quality of life for patients with kidney-related health issues. These initiatives demonstrate the government’s commitment to improving healthcare infrastructure and ensuring that residents have access to the necessary medical treatments and procedures.
