It took just 40 days for the health ministry to roll out the national dialysis care programme across the country after finance minister Arun Jaitley had announced the scheme in the Union Budget.
Launched with technical support from national health systems resource centre (NHSRC), the scheme aims to provide dialysis care in every district across the country.
On Thursday, the ministry released the guidelines setting up the dialysis centres under public private partnership. The ministry has also prepared model tender documents. The scheme is part of the National Health Mission.
