Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Globally, the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 2 or lower reported to be approximately 18.5 and 58.3 per million children. Pediatric CKD imposes a large burden on society that is increasing despite ongoing efforts to control the disease. The burden is unevenly distributed by race and economic status. Whereas evidence suggests that preventive strategies could substantially reduce the burden.
