Chronic kidney disease (CKD) represents a major public health problem. It has significant clinical and socioeconomic implications. This disease increases the efforts of the health system for its early detection and to improve coordination between the different medical specialties. Scientific evidence has shown that the incidence of CKD increases in the population in correlation to the aging process and chronic non-transmissible diseases. Therefore, it is relevant to review the literature to expose the current situation of CKD worldwide and compare it with the local experience from Ambato, Ecuador, with a nephroprotective approach.
