Short description of the project:

The mission of this partnership is for Fiji to become an independent centre of excellence in Nephrology by 2020. It will then serve as the ‘Blue Continent’s’ regional Nephrology hub in support of kidney health for all in the Western Pacific. Although the partnership has been established with Concord Repatriation General Hospital, many other renal units around Australia and New Zealand are supporting this project.

Learning objectives:

  • Improve awareness and advocacy for kidney disease in Fiji
  • Improve access to and use of basic diagnostic tests used in nephrology, including renal biopsy
  • Improve recognition and management of chronic kidney disease with focus on diabetic nephropathy and lupus nephritis
  • Improve treatment and outcomes of acute kidney injury, including use of dialysis
