Précarité et greffe rénale : pourquoi et comment estimer son effet sur la santé des populations ?

Abstract

Studies at the population level must take into account the effect of social insecurity and socioeconomic inequalities on the patient outcomes. Socioeconomic inequalities depend on many determinants that are socially determined. In renal transplantation, these social determinants are not registered in the databases. The European Deprivation Index (EDI) is a composite index of social vulnerability with a French version. The EDI is an ecological measure of deprivation including the individual perception of basic needs for daily life that is called "subjective poverty". The Townsend index, Carstairs index and the Index of Multiple Deprivation are other ecological index available. It has been demonstrated in the United States that socioeconomic indicators of deprivation were associated with both the access to the waiting list for renal transplantation and transplantation failure. In France, socioeconomic deprivation may also affect the access to the waiting list and outcome of transplantation. This article is a review about deprivation and renal transplantation.
