AB  - The increasing attention paid to chronic kidney disease (CKD) as a major cause of
      mortality and disability, as well as the advances in management of CKD in
      children, have created a growing demand for pediatric renal replacement therapy
      (RRT) worldwide. A study by Koch Nogueira and colleagues of children on the
      transplant waiting list showed large disparities in access to pediatric kidney
      transplantation between regions in Brazil. This finding raises a wider question
      about inequalities in access to CKD care in children. Here we review the
      available data on the global burden of end-stage renal disease in children, the
      need for pediatric RRT, and its actual provision worldwide. We focus on
      inequalities in access to renal care for children that currently exist between
      and within countries. Reduction in worldwide inequalities in access to RRT in
      children remains a challenge, which requires greater awareness and effective
      interventions and policies.
