Chronic kidney disease affects a significant number of the population worldwide, up to 15% according to different registries. It is mostly observed in older people; however, occurrence may also differ according to sex, ethnicity, social, economic and environmental factors. Aetiology of the disease is complex, divided to primary and secondary. The second type is strictly associated with global health issues as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, cancer diseases, or infectious diseases. Moreover, many of patients are unaware that they are affected. Therefore, it is of vital importance to define risk groups and detect kidney disease quickly in order to prevent progression to irreversible stage 5.
Despite many initiatives and programs, health care systems are still ineffective as the global population of patients requiring different forms of life saving renal replacement therapy is growing fast. It is expected to reach 5 million individuals. The fact produces a significant impact on the socioeconomic situation of all nations as the aim is to provide equal and unlimited access to effective treatment. There is need for global cooperation to solve this problem.
The Special Issue was founded as a new platform to publish results of especially international and multidisciplinary research groups on different aspects of kidney disease populations.
