[Correspondence] Challenges of measuring the Healthcare Access and Quality Index

We read with interest the GBD 2015 Healthcare Access and Quality study (July 15, 2017, p 231),1 which constructed the Healthcare Access and Quality (HAQ) Index on the basis of risk-standardised cause-specific death rates to facilitate comparisons of personal health-care access and quality for 195 countries and territories from 1990 to 2015. However, we would like to contest some of the findings on the HAQ Index related to chronic kidney disease (CKD).
