Abstract

The American Kidney Fund was founded in 1971 to save the life of one person who needed help paying for dialysis. Forty years later, AKF has become the leading source of direct, treatment-related financial assistance to people in the United States who are living with chronic kidney disease. In 2010, AKF provided treatment-related financial assistance to more than 101,000 dialysis patients nationwide. The work of the American Kidney Fund goes beyond financial assistance. It is also AFK’s mission to provide health education to people with, and at risk for, kidney disease.

Publications

The American Kidney Fund publishes a broad selection of pamphlets on kidney disease with topics ranging from diet to transplantation in English and Spanish. Serial Publications: American Kidney Fund Advocacy Newsletter; Reaching Out, the American Kidney Fund's e-newsletter.
