(MENAFN - Arab News) Minister of Health Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah has signed a SR980 million contract with the German Diaverm firm for the provision of renal dialysis services of both types (blood and peritoneal), local media reported



Following the signing ceremony, Al-Rabeeah said six international companies from three countries namely the United States, Germany and Sweden submitted proposals. The contract was awarded to the German company, he said



He said the project aims to provide a comprehensive treatment with high quality service for patients with chronic kidney failure who are receiving health care at dialysis centers



The service provider will set up and hire dialysis centers distributed in all regions and provinces of the Kingdom, and supply medical teams and equipment in accordance with the set standards and quality to provide the best effective treatment methods in 93 locations, the minister said.



The project will be implemented over a five-year period, treating 10,000 patients with renal failure. The project will be carried out in three stages, where the success of one stage will follow the next based on good indicators such as clinical and laboratory evaluation, patient satisfaction, and mortality, he said



The first stage will cover a period of 24 months, focusing on major cities with high population densities. The second stage will cover 12 months in medium-sized cities and will be complementary to the major cities. The third phase which will be for six months duration will include the smaller towns in the Kingdom, he said.



Mr. Anderson Daq, CEO of Diaverm, praised the Ministry of Health's provision of health care services to patients with kidney failure through a specialized global company



"The company will launch its work in May, by running the first center and complete the other phases gradually," he said.



"The firm will provide services to about 50 percent of patients with kidney failure in the Kingdom in the first phase," Anderson said



There has been a marked rise in the incidence of renal failure patients or end stage chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the Kingdom over the last three decades. This rise is higher than those reported in other countries.



The enormous changes in lifestyles are cited as the single most important contributing factor to the epidemic
