Renal patients appeal to govt to settle Korle-Bu’s GH¢4m debt.

The Renal Patients Association of Ghana has urged the government to settle the GH¢4 million debt owed by the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital to suppliers of dialysis consumables.

The debt has resulted in the closure of the unit to outpatients, and unfortunately, 19 outpatients from the renal unit have lost their lives since its closure in May 2023.

Kojo Ahenkorah, spokesperson for the association, stressed that the payment of this debt could lead to reclosure of the renal unit to outpatients.
He made this appeal after the renal unit was officially opened to patients yeaterday.

Ahenkorah also revealed that he was unable to afford dialysis at a private facility last Friday due to the closure of the unit at Korle-Bu.

He fears that the unit may close within 2 weeks if debt is settled
