Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has a high prevalence in Cameroon and will become an important public health problem. Its management must be comprehensive, starting with CKD prevention to the implementation of renal replacement therapies best suited to the needs of patients and resources available in Cameroon. Practical interventions involving nephrology departments in both Africa and Europe can contribute to an improved management of CKD in Africa. The current collaboration between the Geneva University Hospitals and the Yaoundé teaching hospitals is a convincing example. It includes a clinical trial on the treatment of metabolic acidosis linked to CKD, assistance with the placement of hemodialysis catheters by sonography and the initiation of a kidney transplantation program with living donors.
