Webinar: Challenges to improve CKD care in Latin America

This webinar will identify social, economic and ethnic characteristics of Latin America, recognize the burden of disease risk factors and ESRD in this region and highlight the present gap between estimated incidence of ESRD and real access to therapy.


Description of the Webinar

Latin America is a conglomerate of nations sharing a common Latin ancestry and languages. It extends from Mexico and Caribbean Islands (North) to Tierra del Fuego (South). The region is immersed in an uneven process of epidemiological transition and shows extreme social and economic disparities. ESRD have been growing steadily. The region faces challenges in identifying risk factors for CKD, early detection and prevention of CKD, reduction of incidence of ESRD and improvement of transplantation. Current available data on incidente and prevalence of ESRD and risk factors will be analyzed.
