Morocco: Inauguration of Haemodialysis Centre in Bouskoura - Firm Royal Keenness to Ensure Equal Access to Health Care

Bouskoura  — The constant solicitude of HM King Mohammed VI for people with chronic diseases and his keenness to ensure equal access to health care were once again reflected, Wednesday, with the Sovereign's inauguration of a haemodialysis centre in Bouskoura to provide care for poor people with kidney failure.

Thanks to this royal gesture with high social impact, patient care infrastructure have been reinforced, which attests to renewed solicitude for citizens.

The new centre, which is intended to strengthen basic health infrastructure in the province of Nouaceur, will contribute to improving health services available to people with kidney failure and enable poor people to access quality health care services.

The 5.5 million dirham centre, fitted with modern equipment, can accommodate up to 48 patients per day. It includes eight dialysis generators, a water treatment room, another for consultation, and patient reception and relax facilities.

The centre is part of the national plan for chronic disease management, which aims to reinforce health facilities's capacities in this area, encourage kidney transplants and prevent such diseases.
