1)Introduction: A kidney transplantation in the Philippines cost approximately P600,000 or 1,393,000 Japanese yen at January 2014 exchange rate, while kidney dialysis treatment cost at least P57,600 per month (133,727 Japanese yen). It is estimated that each year, 120 Filipinos per million population (PMP) develop kidney failure or about 10,000 needed kidney replacement each year, rising 10 percent annually.
2)Method: This study will utilize a documentary analysis as this will better provide the different data that shall be used as secondary data for this research. This shall also provide data on the benefits and the risks facing the organ donor and the recipients. All these data will be gathered through a survey and interviews to provide substance to the survey, including: Zamboanga City treatment facilities providing hemodialysis services: Zamboanga Doctors’ Hospital, Zamboanga City Medical Center, Western Mindanao Medical Center, and Ciudad de Zamboanga Hospital.
3)Results: The analysis of documents included in this study served as basis to information to compare relationships between treatment facilities offering only dialysis services and treatment facilities which conduct kidney transplantation. A comparison of variables have been identified and enumerated through a checklist matrix.
4)Conclusion: A growing number of Filipinos dying from causes which although preventable, can be saved through equal accessibility of a Universal Health Care Program. As the cause of death via kidney failure now ranks as the 9th leading cause among Filipinos, it should become more important to acquire medical insurance coverage, in order to save these patients’ lives.
