Our Values

Proactive leadership
Commitment to ‘making a difference'
Kidney Health Australia is a not for profit organization whose focus is to improve kidney health outcomes leading to substantial improvements to the quality of life for people with kidney and urinary tract diseases, their families and carers, as well as developing initiatives that reduce the incidence of kidney disease in the Australian community.

Kidney Health Australia has given a long term commitment to families and children affected by kidney disease, but the biggest challenge remains for us to reach those two million Australians who do not know they have early kidney damage.

Fast Facts on CKD
Kidney disease has no warning signs which means that a person can lose up to 90% of their kidney function before they realise they are sick. It is for that reason that kidney disease is referred to as ‘the silent killer'. Kidney Health Australia works tirelessly to make a noise about this 'silent' disease' which claims many lives every day in Australia. Refer to Fast Facts on CKD for statistics.
