Everyone deserves to be as healthy as they can, no matter where they live, what language they speak or the color of their skin. But in kidney disease, there is a disproportionate burden on communities of color.

AKF is taking action by building out the solutions that tackle kidney disease disparities head-on, and we need your help.

    The kidneys filter out waste and extra fluid from the blood. They also help keep bones healthy, make red blood cells, control blood pressure, and keep the right amount of minerals in your body.
