Abstract

In low and middle income countries (LMIC), the burden of acute kidney injury (AKI) is increasingly high, and associated with a higher mortality when compared with high income countries (1). Recently, Prof. Olowu and collaborators performed an important and informative systematic review (2) on the status of AKI in Sub-Saharan Africa to assess the outcomes of the condition and to identify barriers of care.
