The NKF helps to shape public policy on behalf of kidney disease patients. We work with Congress, federal agencies, and state governments to further legislation and regulation that improve the care and quality of life of kidney disease patients.
The Public Policy Committee is a dynamic advisory body drawn from kidney patients, living kidney donors, and medical professionals.
