The Iron Outreach Program is one of DaVita Malaysia’s CSR initiatives to help underprivileged patients. DaVita Malaysia’s Iron Outreach Program aims to provide financial support for those patients that need financial aids to purchase iron injection. A total number of 287 patients successfully completed the Iron Outreach Program last year from November 2020 to January 2021. Up to 10 doses of intravenous iron injection was administered for those patients with Haemoglobin (Hb) less than 10g/dL and TSAT below 30%. Our Iron Outreach Program shows that intravenous iron intake can improve TSAT and Hb levels.
