Funding for Innovation, Prevention, and Research
By focusing on funding for early detection, patient-centric care, prevention, and research advancements, we aim to improve the lives of individuals affected by and contribute to the national fight against Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).
Access and Affordability
We take a comprehensive policy approach that prioritizes access and affordability for kidney disease patients. We must ensure that all individuals, regardless of their socioeconomic status, can receive the necessary treatment, get expedited access to emerging therapeutics, and manage their condition effectively through value-based payment reform.
NKF endeavors to create a future where every individual, regardless of their background or circumstances, can achieve optimal kidney health and well-being.
