Abstract: Indigenous people in wealthy countries have outcomes of chronic disease that are comparable to those of patients in low socio-economic developing countries. This is not different for renal disease and outcomes of renal replacement therapy. This chapter addresses the dilemmas of using Peritoneal Dialysis in aboriginal patients in Australia. The focus is on aboriginal people in very remote areas and some personal views are presented as to the causes of the gap between outcomes for aboriginal and non-aboriginal patients and how the many failed attempts to close the gap could be addressed.
