The Disadvantaged Populations eGFR Epidemiology Study (DEGREE) is an international collaboration between researchers across disciplines dedicated to better understanding the prevalence and geographic scope of Chronic Kidney Disease of undetermined causes (CKDu) worldwide.

DEGREE’s standardized procedures for studying CKDu prevalence can be implemented anywhere in the world, ensuring data is coordinated and compared using a single protocol.

The data generated and analyzed by DEGREE participants will help future etiological research into CKDu as well as occupational and community-focused interventions.
