Health Desk-- 12th Jan’19: People mostly the poor in South Asian countries suffering from kidney are unable to receive adequate treatment facilities, according to an international study.

The article titled 'State of Nephrology in South Asia' was published on the Kidney International, the official journal of the International Society of Nephrology in January this year.

The study titled 'The State of Nephrology in South Asia' reveals that in South Asia the intraregional trafficking racket takes poor people from Bangladesh and Nepal to India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka for sale of kidneys.

And in this case the rich people from India are going to Pakistan and Sri Lanka to undergo transplantation.

The World Bank classifies Afghanistan and Nepal as low-income countries, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka as low-middle-income countries and the Maldives as an upper middle-income country.
