The need for establishment of National Institute of Kidney Diseases & Urology (NIKDU) ws felt considering the situation of indequate treatment facilities avainable for patients with kidney nd urological diseases, dialysis and transplantation. Then project is financed be Govt. of Peoples Republic of bangladesh. It is one the leading public hospital in Bangladesh.
NIKDU has been set up in the heart of Dhaka city at Sher-E-Bangla Nagar to provide modern and scientific management for Kidney & Urological diseases. In our country with a population of about 160 million nearly 20 million people are suffering from various kidney and urological problems. Every year 15-20 thousand patients develop Acute Renal Failure (ARF), 70% of those can be rescued by dialysis therapy and further 18-20 thousand patients are developing End Stage Renal Diseases (ESRD). On the other hand approximately 3 million patients are suffering from various urological diseases. As a result there is huge number of patients and the existing facilities are very inadequate to serve them. Although we have knowledge and experience for modern management of kidney diseases but we have scarcity of necessary specialties, hospital beds, equipments and laboratory services. It was the above forces which acted as a movement for setting up a separate institute for kidney patients. A project concept paper (PCP), prepared by the leading Nephrologists and Urologists, was placed before the Executive Committee of National Economic Council (ECNEC) in the year 1992. The project was finally passed by ECNEC on 1995 by the Government of People’s Republic of Bangladesh and this was certainly a mile stone in the history of Nephrology, Urology and Transplantation in this country. The institute was formally opened on 18th April 2001.
