Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation

The Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) is the largest public sector health organization in the country which provides free, comprehensive and modern medical care in kidney diseases and transplantation to all. SIUT prime mission is to treat diseases and also to make people aware of their prevention. It also works towards ensuring rehabilitation of patients after treatment. After being given autonomy in 1991, SIUT has treated over 1 million patients and spent over a billion rupees on patient care.
Our patients are predominantly from the rural and poorer urban strata with virtually no access to medical facilities, and who are financially incapable of affording modern diagnostic, treatment and transplant facilities which are very costly in the private sector. SIUT extensive facilities are fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment which enables it to provide free treatment related to a vast area of medicine. This also means that many patients, who would have to go abroad for costly treatment, can now be treated within the country, thereby saving valuable foreign exchange. SIUT depends substantially on contributions from the public, corporate bodies and citizens to provide free treatment to all. A Government Grant and Zakat contributions are also an important part of our funding. The Society for the Welfare of Patients of Urology and Transplantation is the Welfare body of SIUT that raises funds for the free services.
