AKI and CKD: Interactions and Implications for Global Health

November 17, 2016 | 04:30 PM - 06:30 PM

Location: W183C

Session Description

There is a substantial disparity among nations in their access to all aspects of kidney care, including prevention, diagnosis, and management of AKI, CKD, and ESKD. Access to kidney care is especially poor in low and low-middle income countries, and among indigenous populations. Kidney disease is not usually part of national health strategies and does not receive the funding or research attention afforded to other chronic conditions. Robust disease- and country-specific information is needed to inform health policy and raise the profile of kidney health.

The International Society of Nephrology (ISN) has developed a number of programs to build capacity in emerging nations and is focusing on initiatives aimed at raising global access to high quality care of patients with AKI (0 by 25) and CKD (Closing the Gap). Achieving equitable access to optimal kidney care globally requires substantial investments in research, education, and advocacy.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. summarize differences in kidney health and kidney care worldwide; 2. describe challenges of building a global case to strengthen advocacy for kidney care; 3. discuss current ISN programs which are impacting on global kidney health; 4. recommend approaches to developing robust global metrics for kidney care; and 5. explain challenges and opportunities in providing kidney care for disadvantaged populations in developed countries.
