Nearly all cohorts were part of the ISN program on Detection and Management of Chronic Kidney Disease, Hypertension, Diabetes, and Cardiovascular Disease in Devleoping Countries (KHDC), which involved a standardized data collection template and included self-reported information on sociodemographics, tobacco and alcohol consumption, diet, physical activity, and medical history. Participants' blood pressure was also measured, and blood and urine samples were collected.
