(7 votes)

EC Institute: Harare Central Hospital

EC Liaison officer: Prof Rhumbi Dahwa

SC Institute: Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney

SC Liaison Officer: Prof David Gracey


Name of SRC Pair: Australia - Zimbabwe 

SRC Level: C


Learning Objectives: 

The Emerging Center has responsibility for the renal care of the nation of Zimbabwe, with a population of 14 million. Currently, there are only three renal specialists in the country. Thankfully, a trainee of the Supporting Center has recently returned to Zimbabwe to work. We aim to support the Emerging Center to allow research assessing the prevalence of renal disease to enable them to concentrate their limited resources on those who need it most. This will then permit to establish guidelines for referrals and protocols for management by non-specialists staff, such as clinical nurses. This will help relieve the massive clinical burden on the renal specialist as well as improve the access and the standard of clinical care within Zimbabwe.


Program : 

Unit visit by A/Prof Gracey to give lectures, tour of the facility,  engage in round table discussions about CKD epidemiology and clinical practice in Zimbabwe and discuss approaches to conducting an epidemiological study of CKD specific to the Zimbabwe context. This will be followed by regular contract through email and Skype, the outputs of which will be:
- the design, conduct, analysis, presentation and publication of a CKD epidemiology study
- case-specific discussion
- provision of ad hoc advice as required
