The framework, developed in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), supports health systems to generate resource-sensitive solutions to care for kidney disease patients in low-resource settings. It provides broad guiding principles and intends to serve as a guiding document rather than a prescriptive one-size-fits-all solution.

Aimed at health care workers, patients, and policymakers, the document outlines requirements and operational considerations for setting up or expanding dialysis programs and developing sustainable strategies to treat patients with kidney failure.
