# OF AVAILABLE RENAL DIALYSIS UNITS IN SYRIA:
An inquiry was made about the availability of dialysis machines in hospitals, and the results are in the following figure:
Out of 15 hospitals containing dialysis machines, six hospitals had stopped providing dialysis services, which requires follow-up.
Through a complementary survey questionnaire, the number of dialysis devices in the hospitals and their compatibility with the desalination devices, as well as, the number of dialysis devices outside hospitals, were examined. This could be further analyzed, at a later stage, by the nephrology team group.
