Indigenous Peoples' Perspectives of Living With Chronic Kidney
Disease: Systematic Review of Qualitative Studies
The high burden of chronic disease among Indigenous Peoples is widely
recognized. Many Indigenous Peoples with chronic kidney disease (CKD)
experience similar challenges to the general population but may also
encounter inequitable access to responsive, culturally safe health
information and services.
This study describes Indigenous Peoples' experience of living with
CKD to help broaden our understanding of additional barriers to
kidney care across different First Nations groups and settings.

behind other world regions in its capacity to participate in clinical
trials or observational studies in nephrology. This descriptive study
provides a brief report on the quantity and quality of published
research in nephrology from Africa over five decades.
