Earlier this year, the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) launched “We’re United 4 Kidney Health,” an initiative that repositions nephrology as a specialty that embraces kidney health through early intervention, transplantation, innovation and patient choice, and equity. We’re United 4 Kidney Health presents a rallying cry that shows how the kidney community can advance the field by embracing four priorities:
INTERVENE EARLIER to prevent, diagnose, coordinate care, and educate.
TRANSFORM TRANSPLANT and increase access to donor kidneys.
ACCELERATE INNOVATION and expand patient choice.
ACHIEVE EQUITY and eliminate disparities.
ASN is committed to a world without kidney diseases, and the society made significant accomplishments across these four priorities in 2021. Through the broader ASN Alliance for Kidney Health, the campaign's priorities will advance more in the future.
