Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is still a serious health problem in children with increasing morbidity and affecting children’s quality of life (QoL). The prevalence of children with CKD worldwide is approximately 82 cases/year/1 million children. From the Indonesian Basic Health Survey 2013, the prevalence of patients with CKD aged ≥15 years in Indonesia was 0.2%. To assess the QoL in children with CKD as well as its relationship with duration of diagnosis, severity, and related demographic factors, a cross-sectional analytic study was conducted. Individuals were recruited from July 2016 to May 2017 through consecutive sampling. CKD children aged 2–18 years who treated with conservative therapy and hemodialysis were included. Patients and their parents were asked to fill out the PedsQL™ generic score scale version 4.0 questionnaire. A total of 112 children were recruited, and QoL was assessed from parental reports (54.5%) and children’s reports (56.3%). The school and emotional aspects were the lowest score parameters studied. Factor related to QoL children with CKD were length of diagnosis >60 months (P = 0.004), female (P = 0.019), and middle school (P = 0.003). More than half of the children with CKD have disturbance of QoL in general from parental reports (54.5%) and children’s reports (56.3%). Length of diagnosis >60 months, female, and middle school education were all related to the QoL children with CKD.
