Project Background

Renal transplant recipients may need hospitalisation for a variety of reasons. Primarily expected to be at higher risk for various infections followed by cardiovascular disease, acute kidney injury, drug related side effects and neoplasia. We foresee an increased financial burden for transplant patients fighting these illnesses and having been through the arduous procedure of transplantation and immunosuppressive medication, we want each patient to have a fighting chance if faced with the difficulty of hospitalisation.

 Program Supporters
