Chronic kidney disease in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 2011.
Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare
This report presents the first detailed analysis of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people comparative to the non-Indigenous Australian population. Previous information on CKD in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people at the national level has been limited to high-level summary information. Using a variety of data sources (i.e., Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant (ANZDATA) Registry, AIHW Disease Expenditure Database), the current report presents detailed information on CKD and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) including, prevalence and incidence; hospitalisation; mortality; co-morbidity; risk factors; remoteness; health service use and expenditure; quality of life; and burden of disease. The report summates that Indigenous people, especially those who live in remote communities, are more likely to have ESRD, and are more likely to be hospitalised, and/or die as a result of CKD compared with non-Indigenous Australians.
