Chronic kidney disease has been observed to be a major threat to the world’s health, and in some African countries, it is a death sentence. It affects economically productive young adults between the ages of 20–50 in Sub-Saharan Africa as against the middle age and elderly in the developed world. Challenges of renal care in Africa are numerous among which are equity, accessibility, financial constraint, and lack of workforce to mention a few. Therefore, Africa countries must prioritize renal care and include it in the health agenda to cater for the present and future health need of the people.
