DESCRIPTION
The Renal Disease Control Program started as a Department of Health – Preventive Nephrology Project (PNP) in June 1994, with the National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI) as the main implementing agency. The implementation of the project was mainly on screening for urine abnormality among public elementary public school children nationwide.
In January 2000, the Preventive Nephrology Project was renamed Renal Disease Control Program through a Memorandum No. 67-D s. 2000 from the Department of Health (DOH). REDCOP leads in the prevention and control of kidney diseases and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) through a comprehensive public health program and an integrated approach on renal disease management.
