Health Programs

Majority of the increases in total morbidity and mortality in the Philippines have actually come from Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), specifically Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). If left untreated, CKD can progress to more severe complications such as End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD) that now requires more immediate and regular interventions. These interventions include renal replacement therapies ranging from hemodialysis to renal transplant. The increasing numbers of CKDs have become an urgent national concern due to the burden of the disease and high costs of care. Hence, this program aims to reinforce strategies for the prevention and control of CKDs such as lifestyle-related disease prevention, facilitation of early detection and evaluation, and proper disease management for people with CKDs.
