Renal Disease Control Program (REDCOP)

The Renal Disease Control Program (REDCOP) is the office in-charge of implementing the NKTI's public health projects on the prevention and control of renal and other related diseases. It plans, implements and monitors projects for research, advocacy, training, service and quality assurance. REDCOP's activities are done mostly on a national scale through its network of Regional Coordinators throughout the country.
 
The REDCOP also administers and manages the Philippine Renal Disease Registry (PRDR), which include the following: the End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Registry composed of the Hemodialysis, Peritoneal Dialysis & Transplant Registries, and the Chronic Kidney Disease Registry composed of Biopsy.
 
The same Office has been tasked to operate the Philippine Organ Donation Program (PODP) of the Department of Health (DOH). PODP sets up policies, guidelines and ethical principles whereby the act of organ donation and conduct of transplantation from living non-related organ donors (LNRDs) shall be managed and regulated. This Program supports a rational, equitable, ethical, and accessible renal health care program in the country.
 
A huge database on completed and ongoing researches on nephrology, urology & transplant is being maintained by REDCOP and is utilized for planning & policy making. This database is open to other users upon request, using the NKTI's guidelines & policies on data request.
