AHN brings world-class technical expertise combined with developing world practical operating experience to a region in dire need of quality dialysis treatment. In North America, over 97% of patients requiring treatment for kidney disease receive care; in East Africa, less than 5% receive care. AHN's goal is to increase access to high quality care at a lower cost to patients, delivered through a sustainable business model
The internist physician with a Masters Degree in Internal Medicine (Mmed) will work jointly with AHN, and our partner Sengerema Council Designated Hospital, in supervising a Dialysis Centre, as well as serving as a full time physician serving both the inpatient and general outpatient population that visits the hospital
While a Nephrologist will maintain overall oversight of patient care at the Dialysis Centre, the physician would serve as the resident medical officer on-duty while the nephrologist is not present. The physician would need to, as far as possible, attend to all complications arising during dialysis procedures or other procedures within the unit. They would also perform the role of Nephrologist in case of emergencies, when the concerned doctor is not available. Africa Healthcare Network will support the physician with training and Continuous Medical Education in partnership with the Nephrologist to ensure the physician is well equipped to manage the patients with kidney disease, especially those undergoing dialysis.
