Kidney patients undergoing hemodialysis have for an umptieth time taken to the streets in Yaoundé to protest against the lack of machines to offer them quality treatments that will extend their lives.
The patients today morning blocked the road in front of the Yaoundé General Hospital in Ngousso.
The kidney patients at the protest expressed their frustrations at the fact that they are always expected to make public buzz about their plight before they are attended to by the state.
This time around, the patients at the Yaoundé General Hospital-Ngousso say the machines at the hospital are damaged and not even enough to take care of all the patients’ needs.
This insufficiency in equipment at the center has left most of the patients hopeless as undergoing the very much weekly dialysis to survive is no longer possible.
