The American Kidney Fund (AKF) fights kidney disease on all fronts as the nation’s leading kidney nonprofit. AKF works on behalf of the 37 million Americans living with kidney disease, and the millions more at risk, with an unmatched scope of programs that support people wherever they are in their fight against kidney disease—from prevention through transplant. With programs that address early detection, disease management, financial assistance, clinical research, innovation and advocacy, no kidney organization impacts more lives than AKF.
AKF’s Office of Communications and Marketing is a resource for members of the media and other organizations. We can provide information and expert commentary on many topics related to kidney health and kidney disease in the United States, including dialysis and transplant; kidney disease prevention; and public policy relating to kidney disease, treatment and research.
