Since we are witness to constant increase in the number of patients inflected by kidney failure, the only effective way to completely cure such patients is kidney transplantation. On the other hand, our fellow citizens bear 50 $ million cost for kidney transplantation each year, which is the cost for transplantation operation with average cost of 15 thousand dollars for each operation excluding the costs of transportation, visa, plane ticket, accommodation, costs of ones accompanying the patients, etc. Regarding the recent advancements in the different fields in the country, plus the availability of science and skill of doing kidney or other organs transplantation operation by the present domestic specialist team, we, for the first time, made the decision to establish a center for kidney transplantation, (CAPD) or (APD) in the country:
