The COVID-19 Pandemic Converges With Kidney Policy Transformation: Implications for CKD Population Health

Description: The novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has illustrated the vulnerability of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) to poor and inequitable clinical outcomes during healthcare crises.1 Persons with CKD are at increased risk of hospital admissions and critical illness due to COVID-19.2 Disadvantaged populations, including Black and Hispanic individuals and those with low socioeconomic status, are at disproportionate risk of both kidney disease3 and acquiring COVID-19. For example, in a cohort of patients in Louisiana, Black patients were more likely to have CKD and be hospitalized and die from COVID-19.
