|Currently 1.9 million of people in the world are undergoing dialysis. This data is based on only people who registered for RRT. We do not know the exact percent of people reaching ESRD, and also who can afford dialysis. Some data suggests initiation of RRT in developing regions is restricted to fewer than a quarter of patients projected to developing ESRD. One of the big factors is the cost of RRT. Peritoneal dialysis may be cheaper, but it is clinically proven to be equivalent or even slightly superior to hemodialysis. This modality is under-utilized in most parts of the world. If we can promote this modality, more people will be benefitted by the effects of peritoneal dialysis. Materials for this talk are based on the articles of ASAN International Peritoneal Dialysis Journal, National Kidney Foundations and Nephrology Dialysis Transplant.|
