Professor Peter Mungai was recently appointed as the first director of the East African Kidney Institute.

The Institute is a flagship centre of excellence to be constructed at the Kenyatta National Hospital Campus through funding from the African Development bank.  The bank has set aside funding for various centres of excellence within the region.  A cardiac institute and an oncology unit have already been constructed under the same funding in Tanzania and Uganda respectively.

The Institute will be manned by both the University of Nairobi and the Kenyatta National hospital.

Ground breaking ceremony for the institute is anticipated in a few months from now.

 The key users of this renal unit will be the departments of Surgery, Internal Medicine and School of Nursing.  A curriculum for masters in urology is already in place and others are expected to follow.

The department wishes professor Mungai well in his new endeavour
