Welcome to the American Kidney Fund’s Action Center!

Keeping policymakers informed is an important aspect in the fight against kidney disease.  Use the Action Alerts below to send personalized letters to your representatives in Congress on key issues impacting kidney patients and their families.

Support Legislation for CKD Research and Treatment

Join us in supporting the Chronic Kidney Disease Improvement in Research and Treatment Act of 2014. By signing onto this important piece of legislation, you will be helping to improve access to quality care for thousands of Americans with kidney disease.

Take Action: Support Funding for Kidney Research

Join us in urging members of Congress to support increased funding for kidney disease research at the National Institutes of Health. More individuals are affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD) than by cancer or heart disease, yet CKD is underfunded compared to the research dollars invested in these and other diseases. Take action today!

Support Lifetime Immunosuppressive Drug Coverage for Kidney Transplant Patients!

For many kidney transplant recipients, Medicare coverage of their anti-rejection medications ends after 36 months.  Urge your representatives in Congress to support legislation that would extend lifetime coverage of these vital medications to all kidney transplant patients!

Urge Your Representative to Join the Congressional Kidney Caucus!

Send a personalized letter to your Member of Congress today and ask that they join the Congressional Kidney Caucus to show their support for the millions of Americans living with, or at risk of developing, kidney disease!
