Dr. Terrance Drew, the prime minister, declared Monday that he would lower the cost of dialysis on St. Kitts and Nevis. Drew, who is also the Minister of Health, announced that patients with renal failure using the JNF General Hospital’s haemodialysis unit will now pay EC $200 rather than EC $400. The declaration from the prime minister comes as the unit is getting ready to mark its tenth anniversary.

In addition to reiterating his government’s commitment to delivering accessible and reasonably priced healthcare on St. Kitts and Nevis, Drew said that the cost reduction will provide much-needed financial relief to the patients who depend on these essential services.

In addition to reiterating his government’s commitment to delivering accessible and reasonably priced healthcare on St. Kitts and Nevis, Drew said that the cost reduction will provide much-needed financial relief to the patients who depend on these essential services. “We understand the challenges faced by individuals and families dealing with renal issues. By reducing the cost of dialysis services, we aim to alleviate some of the financial burdens associated with chronic kidney disease. Our primary concern is the well-being of our people.”

Drew is hoping to continue to build on the legacy of Governor General Dame Marcella Liburd, who established the Haemodialysis Unit when she was health minister. Moving forward, the prime minister is hoping to introduce more renal services at the island’s premier public health institution.  “The introduction of renal transplant services is a significant step forward in our efforts to improve healthcare infrastructure and enhance the quality of life for our citizens. Patients will no longer need to seek these services abroad, reducing the emotional and financial burdens associated with overseas treatment,” he said.
