Status: Baseline only


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

Baseline: 358.1 new cases of ESKD per 1,000,000 population occurred in 2016 (adjusted for age, sex, and race)

Target: 268.6 new cases of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) per 1,000,000 population

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.
