In 2022, the Guyana Government will introduce a Dialysis Support Programme whereby it will finance up to $600,000 per annum worth of dialysis treatment for “each and every dialysis patient” in Guyana.

This programme will provide much needed assistance to almost 300 persons at a cost of $180 million.
