Contenuto The Report on the Status of Health in the European Union (EUGLOREH) is a project aimed at describing health problems in member states of the European Community. This project is an effort of more than 170 European experts and the collaboration of the health authorities or institutions from all EU Member States, major intergovernmental, International and European Organizations and Agencies. In this report, for the first time special emphasis is given to chronic diseases. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasingly recognized as a major public health problem. However, with some notable exceptions, until now this disease has received scarce attention both at European level and at member states level. In 2007, the ERA-EDTA Registry was invited to contribute to EUGLOREH. The Registry made a major effort to gather published and unpublished information on the epidemiology of CKD and ESRD and to provide a comprehensive overview on CKD and ESRD in European countries. The review was completed in early 2008 and included into the final EUGLOREH published in the WEB as of 20 March 2009.
