Abstract: Indigenous Australians have a higher rate of kidney disease than the rest of Australia. There is also a high rate of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) which requires dialysis or kidney transplant. Instead of relocating to get necessary treatment, various models of dialysis are used around Australia with the aim to provide dialysis as close to home as possible.
