Tackling Kenya’s ESKD challenge together

The 14th Annual Scientific Conference of the Kenya Renal Association was my chance to dive further into the issue of End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD) and talk about ways of improving global access to integrated ESKD.

Between 2.3 and 7.1 million people die annually from End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD) due to a lack of access to dialysis. As a high-income country with expertise in peritoneal dialysis (PD), Hong Kong has a lot of practical experience to offer its neighboring low- and middle-income countries in tackling this growing issue.

ISN and the Japanese Society of Nephrology (JSN) signed a declaration of collaboration at the 60th JSN Congress in Sendai, Japan. The two nephrology societies will collaborate to advance knowledge of kidney diseases through research, and to improve awareness, diagnosis and management to eliminate kidney diseases worldwide.

As a recent guest of Professor Khin Maung Htay at Yangon’s Thingangyun San Pya Hospital and Yangon Specialist Hospital, I was exposed to how snake bites are a major health concern in Myanmar, especially for kidney patients.
