Acute kidney injury (AKI) is global healthcare issue with high morbidity and mortality, and
caused by multiple and varied etiologies. In Bolivia like in many low and low-middle income
countries (LLMICs), a considerable number of patients who develop AKI die (1). Since AKI
commonly occurs in the community (CA-AKI) as a complication of a single reversible
disease that is potentially preventable and treatable (2); it is extremely important to
improve AKI awareness, education programs among health-care workers, detection tools
and treatment protocols in order to avoid short and long term adverse outcomes
