Vision and Mission

The American Kidney Fund's vision is a world without kidney disease. Until that day comes, we believe that every kidney patient should have access to health care, and every person at risk for kidney disease should be empowered to prevent it. We carry out our mission—fighting kidney disease and helping people live healthier lives—with an unmatched scope of programs that support people wherever they are in their fight against kidney disease—from prevention through post-transplant living.

Education and Research

AKF has long recognized the link between professional/medical education and the provision of quality health care and the improvement of clinical outcomes. Our continuing education programs address the learning needs and interests of the members of the health care team across the spectrum of kidney disease care and prevention. We support clinical research focused on improving patient outcomes through our Clinical Scientist in Nephrology fellowships, and we are building a network of Kidney Health Educators who can reach deep into communities to empower those at risk for kidney disease to prevent it.
