[Correspondence] Saving Young Lives: provision of acute dialysis in low-resource settings

Acute kidney injury in low-resource settings is a frequently fatal complication of common infections such as malaria, dehydration caused by severe diarrhoea, and obstetric complications, and it disproportionately affects children and young adults. The International Society of Nephrology (ISN) 0by25 initiative aims to eliminate preventable deaths from this complication worldwide by 2025.1 Acute kidney injury is preventable and treatable, with a survival rate of more than 50% if acute dialysis is available during the 7–14 days needed for most patients to recover kidney function.
