Dialysis in Developing Countries

  • R. S. Barsoum

Abstract

Of the hundreds of thousands of people with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), the majority are inhabitants of the Developing World. According to a recent World Bank’s estimate (1), about 56% of the World’s population live in countries with an annual gross national income (GNP) per capita less than 500 US dollars, indeed with an average of only 330 US$. It is in those countries that renal disease is particularly common, and is notoriously associated with very high morbidity and mortality
