Partnership Benefits

There are numerous benefits involved in opening haemodialysis centres in partnership with the NKF. However, as a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing affordable haemodialysis treatment to the lower income group, the most important benefit is reserved for our patients in terms of lower charges.

Compared to private haemodialysis centres which charge between RM150 and RM250 per dialysis treatment, all NKF centres, and others we have opened in partnership with third parties, charge no more then RM40 per dialysis treatment.

This is one of our pre-requisites so as not to burden patients. But that’s not all. Patients at NKF-linked haemodialysis centres also benefit from lower charges for injections of Erythropoietin, a drug that increases their red blood cells and heparin, an anti-blood clotting drug.

And thanks to our bulk purchases, the dialysis centres themselves enjoy the benefit of lower prices for consumables, such as dialysers, arterial venous bloodlines, fistula needles, haemodialysis solutions such as bicarbonate and acetate, drip sets, saline solutions and transducer protectors among many others.

As the first non-governmental organisation to offer haemodialysis treatment in Malaysia, the NKF has developed terms and conditions that encourage third parties to partner with us in opening up more dialysis centres for the lower income group.

Below, we list some of our main conditions for such partnerships:


  • To provide the physical facility(building) for the setting up of the dialysis centre.
  • Equip the dialysis centre with 10 or more dialysis machines together with the relevant medical equipment.
  • Initial charges of RM90 per dialysis treatment and RM40 upon acceptance into NKF programme after approval by MOH.
  • Provide capital cost for the replacement of unserviceable dialysis machines and medical equipment.
  • Contribute RM50,000 per annum as partner’s share of the replacement cost or replace unserviceable machines in lieu of the RM50,000 contributions.


  • To operate and maintain the dialysis centre.
  • To pay the rental for the premises of the dialysis centre, if applicable.
  • Pay the premiums on fire/risk insurance and on assets and equipment in the dialysis centres.
  • Pay all wages and salaries to medical and administrative staff.
  • Pay the maintenance and repair costs for the dialysis equipment and the dialysis centre.
  • Pay for any costs of consumables, pharmaceuticals and laboratory investigations.
  • Use the government subsidy of RM50 per dialysis, to operate and maintain the operation of the dialysis centre
  • To pay for utilities such as water, electricity and telephones.
