DOPPS Research in the Gulf Cooperation Council Countries

Starting in 2012, the DOPPS began collecting and analyzing data in six of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries: Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Seven papers have been published in a special supplement to the November-December issue of the Saudi Journal of Kidney Diseases and Transplantation.

The supplement is available online here.
