Rates of kidney failure or end stage kidney disease (ESKD) have been steadily increasing with the prevalence of diabetes and the aging population in Manitoba. The purpose of this report was to gain a greater understanding of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and ESKD in adults and children in the province. The findings will provide background knowledge to prevent new cases of CKD, to intervene early to slow the progression to ESKD and to plan resources for kidney health services in the future. Manitoba Health, Healthy Living and Seniors asked Manitoba Centre for Health Policy to answer the following research questions: a) What are the future needs for kidney health services (peritoneal dialysis, home hemodialysis, in-centre dialysis and kidney transplant) in Manitoba? b) What is the geographic distribution of this population? c) What are the characteristics of the future population of Manitoba residents who will require renal replacement treatment? d) What preventive, screening, and education measures and affiliations with existing programs, might reduce the number of Manitobans who will require dialysis?
