NCD Chronicles #3: Being On Dialysis Isn’t The End of the Road

Chronic kidney disease  is an NCD that we’ve struggled to tackle for decades. In fact, the burden of chronic kidney disease continues to rise - and thus the number of people who progress to end-stage renal disease, a point where they need to be on dialysis or receive a kidney transplant. On this episode of NCD Chronicles, we hear from Siva Kumar Raghavan, who is now living with end-stage renal disease, about his journey from being diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, to receiving a kidney transplant, and having to return to dialysis when his transplant failed. We also hear from Dr Rosnawati Yahya, consultant nephrologist from Hospital Kuala Lumpur about the challenges that patients face in accessing dialysis and finding a kidney donor.


NCD Chronicles is a series about people living with NCDs, going beyond the diagnosis to explore their personal experiences, their challenges, as well as the impact of their health condition on their loved ones. These stories reveal the importance of understanding the unique struggles and needs of the individuals behind the disease, in our response to the NCD epidemic.
