There are significant global inequities in access to long-term dialysis. In LMIC countries, dialysis must often be financed by the patient, meaning that many who start the treatment can only continue for a short time. The framework presents a holistic approach to provide accessible, good-quality dialysis in these settings.
The ISN encourages all to download the framework and share it with health care workers, patients, and policymakers.
