We help people with kidney disease in Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Lakes, Tairawhiti and Hawkes Bay. For over 40 years, we have connected people to the vital information, education and support services they need to preserve their kidney health and live a better quality of life diagnosed with kidney disease. We work with a range of stakeholders and community groups to drive innovations and improvements in the management of kidney disease, so that one day every New Zealander can enjoy good kidney health.
