Who We Are

NKF is a lifeline for all people affected by kidney disease—the largest public health issue you’ll ever hear about. We’re an activist organization that takes action to ensure better outcomes for the 26 million Americans impacted by kidney disease, from diagnosis and treatment to support.

We're expanding the cultural conversation from kidney disease to kidney health, and we educate the public on preventing kidney disease before it starts. We work to accelerate change in the field of kidney health by changing laws, supporting research and improving the quality of life for all kidney patients.
