WKD Scientific Editorial 2015
With the aim of increasing awareness and emphasizing the message of World Kidney Day, every year the WKD Steering Committee submits a scientific editorial to a wide range of medical journals.
This year, the editorial was jointly written by Dr. Guillermo Garcia Garcia and Dr. Vivekanand Jha and focuses on Chronic Kidney Disease in Disadvantaged Populations. It reviews the two main causes of the increased burden of CKD in disadvantaged populations: global factors and population-specific issues, and discusses different solutions to end its inhuman and unacceptable consequences. It will be published in some 48 journals.
