Engisys Limited has inaugurated a Renal Dialysis Centre in Ghana to offer treatment to the general public.
The new facility, having gained approval from the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), will operate under the Global Dialysis Group Limited in Accra as a subsidiary of Engisys.
At an official inauguration of the facility on July 4 in Accra, the Managing Director (MD) of Engisys Limited, Nana Yaw Appiah, indicated that the new facility would play a crucial role in providing more access to people who required treatment at dialysis centres as there were only a handful in the country.
Engisys Limited secured financial assistance from Access Bank’s German Desk Ghana — Financial Support and Solutions.
“Today, we are excited that our financing partners, in particular Access Bank and the Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Ghana (DEG) through The German Desk Ghana have supported us to establish this modern renal centre here in Ghana,” he said.
According to recent reports from the World Health Organisation (WHO), there were over 2.4 million people worldwide receiving renal dialysis treatment and the number continues to grow at a rate of about eight per cent annually.
The number of people with acute and chronic renal failure in the West African sub-region has increased tremendously and Ghana is no exception.
