The most exciting plans for the new millennium is the Renal Unit's vision to build "The Dumisane Mzamane African Institute of Kidney Diseases".

Dr. Mzamane a former head of this department and the first black nephologist was one of the first people to protest the inequality of renal care provided to black patients. However, despite his tireless protest he never lived to witness improved renal facilities. This facility will be a tribute to him and all those fighting for better care of our patients.

A proposal has been drawn up and this vision fits into the existing developments of other specialist departments such as cardiology and gastroenterolgy who both now have an institute.
