With the generous support of the community, we fight to advance vital research to eliminate kidney disease and diabetes.

As the fastest growing chronic health problem in this country, diabetes affects nearly 5% of the population, or about 1.2 million Australians. Chronic kidney disease is also on the rise, affecting 1 in 10 Australians.

But the research we fund is helping people live well with these conditions.
