Renal replacement therapy (RRT), through either dialysis or renal transplantation, is a life-saving yet high-cost treatment for people with end-stage kidney disease.

According to the latest research by the George Institute for Global Health published in The Lancet, the number of people receiving RRT is projected to grow from 2.618 million in 2010 to 5.439 million by 2030.

"However, the number of people without access to RRT will remain substantial," the study titled 'Worldwide access to treatment for end-stage kidney disease: a systematic review' said.
