Today, 8 state-of-the-art CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) Screening Vehicles (mobile labs) worth LKR 660 million donated by China entered commissioning in 8 CKDu affected areas, i.e. Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Vavuniya, Trincomalee, Ampara, Kurunagala, Matale, Badulla.

SriLankan people especially in the rural area are suffering in relation to CKD, known as the “silent killer”;, as patients live with the disease for years before showing symptoms. Early screening and detection will spare the patients with limited healthcare access from pain says the Chinese Embassy.

The 8 Screening Vehicles is part of joint effort to change the CKDs status quo, following the China Sri Lanka Friendship National Nephrology Hospital in Polonnaruwa for treatment, and Joint Research & Demonstration Center for Water Technology in Kandy to find the cause.

Personnel training and equipment examining have been an important part of the donation, before the 8 mobile labs enter commissioning the embasy said in a tweet.
