The literature abounds with attestations about the lack of treatment programs for kidney injury in developing countries. To date, no sustainable treatment program exists for acute kidney injury (AKI) in many of the 48 countries in the sub-Saharan region of Africa. The Sustainable Kidney Care Foundation, together with industry, universities, and funding organizations, has been working on establishing peritoneal dialysis treatment programs for AKI in East Africa, starting with the countries comprising the East African Community and with a special focus on treating children and women of childbearing age.
