The Kidney Alliance

Kidney Alliance

 

To promote prevention and early identification of kidney disease and high quality treatment for all patients at risk from or identified with kidney failure on an equal or uniform basis throughout the UK.

The Kidney Alliance is pleased to support the Antibiotic Action Campaign. We note the vulnerability of all kidney patients to infections, the lowered immune systems of those with transplants, and support the push towards more education and research on drugs to beat infections. Shockingly, healthcare associated infections are the second leading cause of death for the dialysis population. In addition they probably cost at least £100 million pounds per annum Рfor 25,000 patients. The need for and the reliance on effective treatments is clear.
