In India, there are approximately 2 million individuals suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage-5, which signifies severe kidney dysfunction. An additional 0.2 to 0.22 million CKD-5 patients are diagnosed each year. Presently, around 21 million dialysis sessions occur annually in India, covering only about 11% of the nation's total annual demand.
This points to a significant gap in meeting the needs of patients, driven by issues related to accessibility, affordability, and compliance. Dialysis costs in India can fluctuate significantly, contingent on factors such as facility location, dialysis method, and treatment frequency. Typically, monthly dialysis expenses can range from ₹24,000 to ₹48,000 on average.
