Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Available data from developing countries, about chronic kidney disease (CKD) in children is limited. In most countries, obstructive uropathy and congenital anomalies are the predominant causes of CKD. On the other hand, less developed countries has infections related glomerulopathies that are the main cause of CKD in children. However, further observational study is needed to add to the universal picture of the epidemiology of CKD in children.
