We advocate on behalf of the community across a number of issues that support our vision of a future where every Australian can enjoy good kidney health.

How your voice is heard

We speak out for our community across all levels of government. We seek meaningful change by calling for improvements to existing policies, developing new ideas, adopting innovation, and representing the 'voice' of those with kidney disease – especially when things aren’t working.

We highlight the need for more attention and investment in tackling chronic kidney disease. This spans funding and partnerships, as well as professional education of the medical and clinical community.

In 2018, we were commissioned by the Commonwealth Government Department of Health to develop The National Strategic Action Plan for Kidney Disease. A crucial part of our work is ensuring the recommendations are implemented.

As well, we advocate for the most vulnerable in our community, including:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • those that live in rural and remote regions in Australia
  • young people who are affected by kidney disease.

We push for the provision of equitable health care for all Australians, culturally appropriate care, and strong and effective representation. Read more in our patient charter.
