Great work Dr Ferguson. Without your intervention this young doctor would not have made it.

People should not die from chronic kidney failure but sadly it is a death sentence in PNG.

The cost of a dialysis machine is probably much less than that of a new land cruiser but due to short sightedness of governments and beauraucrates in the health department, none of the public hospitals in the country have a dialysis machine or renal unit.

What a disgrace and injustice to the 7 million people of PNG! Only one private hospital in this country offers this service at a cost of K800-1000 per session and unfortunately most people cant afford and die after 1-2 sessions only.

i know this because i have lost two close relatives in the past 18 months to chronic kidney failure. It's about time the government looked into this vital service.
