A groundbreaking initiative from the National Kidney Foundation to provide the knowledge and tools to alter chronic kidney disease (CKD) outcomes.


Only 10% of people living with CKD are aware that they have CKD. CKDintercept is a broad national strategy to improve CKD testing, diagnosis, and management in primary care. Our goal is to ensure that everyone living with CKD receives high quality care and the information necessary to make informed healthcare choices.
