Chronic Kidney disease is increasingly being recognized throughout the world. 85 million people are suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Of them more than 80 per cent are from low and LMIC. As a result, more than 2-7 million die prematurely due to death and disability and now become the 12th cause of death around the world.

In Bangladesh, CKD are also increasing. The health care professionals, the general population, stake holders and policy makers need to be involved to alleviate the burden of CKD.

This year's main theme is decided to focus on prevention of Chronic kidney disease. The prevention of CKD is to be started at the community level. Screening for diabetes, Hypertension and CKD is the most important way to prevent the disease. Delegates from UK and speakers from South Asia are expected to join the conference.
