Kidney Health Initiative

Kidney Health Initiative

Despite the large number of Americans affected by kidney disease, few new drugs have been approved to treat it in the past decade. To address this issue and to ensure high-quality care for every patient with kidney disease, the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) formed a public–private partnership called the Kidney Health Initiative (KHI) in September 2012 to enhance patient safety and foster innovation.
