Urolink represents BAUS in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs)


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 related travel restrictions,
all Urolink visits to centres abroad are currently suspended

However, Urolink continues to support its project sites remotely and
aims to continue providing, where possible, any other assistance required.

Listen to the Podcast , from August 2020, when Tim O'Brien (President of BAUS) talked to Suzie Venn, Nick Campain and Charles Mabedi about Urolink's activities in sub-Saharan Africa.


June 2021 – Continuing the trainee education series, a webinar on Posterior Urethral Valves was presented by Dr Robert Kachacha, from UTH Lusaka, and Helen Please from Leeds. The age at presentation of PUVs in both countries was markedly different and there was a wide-ranging discussion about aetiological factors as well as the pros and cons of early and later treatment. Ram Sunramaniam gave a fascinating synopsis of his vast experience in managing the dysfunctional bladder problems associated with this condition.  If you weren't able to access the live session, then you can review the recorded webinar hereIf you want to view the webinar programme then please click here.
