Treating the poorest kidney patients in the worldiclaron
ISN Fellow Sudakshina Ghosh from Tanzania trained at the Madras Medical Mission and got involved with India’s Tanker Foundation, which helps the country’s poorest kidney patients.
Host mentor and Tanker Foundation Founder Georgi Abraham believes more fellows from Africa and South Asia should be encouraged to train in India as it “adds value to their training by seeing and experiencing nephrology care in a low-cost setting.”
Dr. Ghosh’s gained hands-on training in Chronic Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD), hemodialysis and renal biopsy, and learned about awareness and prevention programs. Finally, she presented clinical research at the World Congress of Nephrology 2015 in Cape Town, South Africa.
Through the ISN Fellowship Programs, Fellows from emerging countries get individual and hands-on training in their selected host institutions. They return home with new skills and knowledge in basic and clinical nephrology, dialysis, transplantation, epidemiology. They improve treatment, teach and train others and become future leaders in the developing world.
