In the past year, over 285,000 dialysis treatments were done in the country. Over 6,000 patients are currently on dialysis in the country, attributed to by the increase to access to financing such as the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) which now covers dialysis for patients in the country. Kenya has made huge steps in kidney care but more needs to be done in terms of education about kidney health. Lack of knowledge by the general public about kidney diseases has been identified as the biggest challenge to kidney care in the country. For progress to be made in early detection and treatment of kidney diseases, there is need to create awareness on early detection of kidney diseases as well as how to prevent them. The government is also working to establish a kidney diseases technical working group which will ensure streamlining in the treatment of kidney diseases.
