Status: Improving


Most Recent Data:
378.2 new cases of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) per 1,000,000 population (2018)

290.0 per 1,000,000 1

Desired Direction:
Decrease desired

386.7 new cases of ESKD per 1,000,000 population occurred in 2016 (adjusted for age, sex, and race) 2

Reduce the rate of new cases of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD)

Target-Setting Method
Maintain consistency with national programs, regulations, policies, or laws


People with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) need dialysis or a kidney transplant to survive. Preventing ESKD requires monitoring and treating chronic kidney disease (CKD), diagnosing and treating people with acute kidney injury, and managing populations at risk for CKD — like people with diabetes or high blood pressure. Population health and team-based approaches to diabetes and kidney care are linked to fewer new ESKD cases in some groups.
