Answer

The US Surgeon General’s latest report on 10-year national objectives for improving the health of all Americans, Healthy People 2020, contains a chapter focused on CKD. For 2020, Healthy People lays out 14 objectives concerning reduction of the US incidence, morbidity, mortality, and health costs of CKD. Reducing renal failure will require additional public health efforts, including effective preventive strategies and early detection and treatment of CKD.
