GM everyone and thank you for being here. im going to start off in the first half by providing u with a brief overvw of te facts and figures pertaining to renal disease here in Malaysia. so as to set the stage for the second half where I will cover the rationale and objectives of the Fr to Live campaign .
The reason is this – there is an alarming trend worldwide for a rising incidence of ESRD…. In fact it is estimated that the no.of global dialysis pts will almostdouble from the year 2000 to the year 2010 to reach more than 2 million people
This is Data from our malaysian NRR which shows the rising number of patients being accepted onto dialysis in our country
There are many different causes of kidney failure but diabetes is responsible for an ever increasing no. of cases.. This is similar to the trend seen worldwide
ESRD places enormous burdens on the individual as well as the country’s health care resources. We can classify the impact of ESRD in terms of the economic, medical and social consequences
Rx of ESRD is very costly for e.g. in the US the cost of RX in 1997 was 13 billion USD
In Malaysia , the cost per life year saved is RM 33,642 for HD and 31,635 for CAPD.
There is aso a significant medical burden a/w ESRD
In fact studies have shown that deaths from CVd are 10-20 times higher c.f. the gen pop
The medical burden is also increasing b/c…. This pt population is more likely to have other medical problems apart from kidney failure d/t their advanced age
At the same time ESRD….such as in the brain, heart, peripheral blood vessels and eyes.
Last but not least there is the social burden of ESRD.
So The need to prevent or retard the progression of renal disease is obvious. This is why the MSN in collaboration with Baxter have developed a kidney health education campaign, entitled”Freedom….”
This campaign takes the form of a integrated….
The theme of this campaign, “the Freedom …” was chosen because we hope to reach the public with the message that prevention or proper Rx….. We also want to encourage and educate patients that even with advanced kidney disease, it is …
In closing I would just like to reiterate the key messages. Firstly,
WHY focus on the effective management of chronic kidney disease?
Worldwide rising trend in the incidence of ESRD and the number of new dialysis patients
Global maintenance dialysis population from 1990 to 2010
Renal Replacement Therapy in Malaysia Prevalence Rate 1980 - 2003
