• The total number of prevalent cases of chronic kidney disease across the countries under study will increase by 23% from 72 million in 2016 to 89 million in 2036.
  • Across the countries considered in this report, 75% of those with stage 5 CKD are receiving dialysis.
  • The prevalence of anemia increases by CKD stage, from 8% of stage 1 cases to 77% of stage 5 cases.

There is substantial variation in the prevalence of chronic kidney disease among the countries under study, ranging from 102 per 1,000 in Spain to 159 per 1,000 in Japan in 2016.
