About Kidney Disease

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), which affects 800 million people worldwide, is becoming a new national disease in Japan as the population ages.

While progress has been made in the provision of medical care, human resource development, and the treatment environment, the number of dialysis patients in Japan is on the rise.

HGPI works to identify issues and make policy proposals with the aim of equalizing measures against CKD and other renal diseases from the viewpoints of patients and parties concerned, and to promote the horizontal development of good practices.
