The medical burden caused by kidney disease has already had a significant impact on St. Kitts and Nevis. The current challenge is the lack of a comprehensive chronic disease prevention and control system targeting chronic kidney disease. This project aims to address this.
The major elements of the project include:
- Assisting in planning effective integrated care strategies and practices for the prevention and control of chronic kidney disease
- Strengthening nephrology care
- Improving community self-management capabilities for the prevention and control of chronic kidney disease.
