Wed, Feb 2, 2011, 08:05 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 02, Colombo: Sri Lanka Ministry of Health sources say the Anuradhapura Hospital in the North Central Province will start kidney transplants from this year.

The hospital is situated in an area prone to high risk of renal diseases.

The Renal Hospital and the Research Institute of Anuradhapura Hospital were opened a year ago.

The operation theatres of the hospital are still being constructed. Government of France provides assistance for the construction.

The Hospital will render services to the people of Jaffna, Mullaitivu, Kilinochchi, Mannar, Vavuniya, Anuradhapura, Vavuniya, Trincomalee, Kurunegala, and Puttalam districts. Residents in some areas of these districts are highly prone to the renal diseases.

The high content of fluoride, heavy metals such as Aluminium in the water in these areas, contamination of the water supply with artificial fertilizers used for paddy cultivation have been identified as major contributing factors to high incidences of renal diseases.
