The Children's Hospital at Fudan University in Shanghai announced on Monday the establishment of an international exchange school for automatic peritoneal dialysis for children with kidney problems. Peritoneal dialysis is a way to remove waste from the blood when the kidneys fail.

Through a live internet broadcast, more than 30 doctors and nurses specializing in pediatric kidney diseases from Hong Kong, Taiwan and three Southeast Asian countries (Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia) participated in the school's first training course, which was launched to promote best APD practices in countries and regions involved in the Belt and Road Initiative.

In addition, 80 pediatricians from 22 medical centers in 18 provincial-level regions on the Chinese mainland attended the course in person. Experts from the Chinese mainland and Taiwan, joined by others from Canada, shared their experience with APD for children and the diagnosis and treatment of dialysis-related peritonitis.
