American Kidney Fund


The American Kidney Fund's vision is a world without kidney disease. Until that day comes, we believe that every kidney patient should have access to health care, and every person at risk for kidney disease should be empowered to prevent it. We carry out our mission-- helping people fight kidney disease and live healthier lives-- through an array of impactful programs and services.


We are dedicated to ensuring that every kidney patient has access to health care and that every person at risk for kidney disease is empowered to prevent it. We are meeting the enormous public health challenge that is kidney disease through a broad range of programs and services aimed at patients, caregivers, health care professionals, policy makers and the general public.
