End stage renal disease constitutes a public health problem globally. One of methods of solution of this problem is hemodialysis. To determine factors related to duration of hemodialysis among Sudanese Patients. It was a cross-sectional survey. Fifty Sudanese Patients on regular hemodialysis at Gezira Hospital for Renal Diseases & Surgery, Gezira State, Sudan; were selected. Independent variables were age, gender, marital status, level of education, occupation, presence and types of congenital anomalies of urinary system. Dependent variable was hemodialysis. Investigation was done using structured questionnaire. Data was analyzed using SPSS version 21. P-value ≤ 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Age range was 19 - 70 years. Male gender was predominant (62%) among study population. Generally duration of hemodialysis is higher among male. Sixty six percent of respondents were married. There was no statistical association between marital status and duration of hemodialysis. Thirty eight percent were graduated from secondary school, university, and postgraduate studies. Majority of the rest were either illiterateor graduated from Holly Quran School (Khalwa), or primary school. About 78% of study population either non-employed or from low economical class. There was strong statistical association between occupation and duration of hemodialysis. Rate of congenital anomalies was 12%. There was statistical relationship between both presence and types of congenital anomalies of renal system and duration of hemodialysis among study population. Economically active age group was more affected than others. Duration of hemodialysis was higher among male. Un-married respondents were more vulnerable than married groups. Duration of hemodialysis was longer among respondents with low socioeconomic status and among respondents having congenital anomalies of renal system. Screening for presence of congenital anomalies of renal system among general population may be of great help.
