Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

One in seven US adults (37 million people) are estimated to have chronic kidney disease (CKD). Of those, 521,000 individuals have end-stage kidney disease and are on outpatient hemodialysis, home hemodialysis, or peritoneal dialysis and 223,000 live with a functioning kidney transplant (USRDS, 2019). With a threat to health so pervasive, efforts to improve the lives of affected Americans must be committed and strong.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Nephrologists Transforming Dialysis Safety

CDC has created a Nephrology Community which was brought together to implement infection prevention and describe best practices. This community represents a great resource for CDC identifying barriers and facilitators to adherence to CDC-recommended infection prevention practices.

CDC has previously obtained support in this area using contracts with the American Society of Nephrology, Inc. (ASN) which has yielded the development of training materials and infection prevention-focused webpages, a Targeting Zero Infections webinar series, live educational sessions, audit tools and checklists, and a variety of publications and regular social media messaging which has pushed forward engaging strong nephrologist leaders to cultivate a climate that assures patient safety by preventing infections.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To create a world without kidney diseases, the ASN Alliance for Kidney Health elevates care by educating and informing, driving breakthroughs and innovation, and advocating for policies that create transformative changes in kidney medicine throughout the world.

To accomplish its vision and mission, the ASN Alliance for Kidney Health will:

1. Advance the work of kidney medicine by:
a. Creating a stronger focus on kidney health.
b. Intervening earlier to prevent, diagnose, coordinate care, and educate.
c. Developing broad partnerships to address the health of the global population, promoting health equity, and
advocating for high-quality therapies, including home dialysis and transplant.

2. Accelerate innovation and expand patient choice by:
a. Advancing kidney health and research via KidneyCure, the Kidney Health Initiative, and KidneyX.
b. Building research readiness, inclusiveness, and translation in kidney medicine, which requires championing
clinical trials.
c. Developing innovative partnerships, creatively pursuing scientific opportunities, and increasing public and
private funding.

3. Lead culture change that creates a diverse, equitable, and inclusive pathway for advancing kidney health by:
a. Identifying, confronting, and overcoming systemic racism in health care, science, and kidney medicine by achieving equity and eliminating
disparities.
b. Engaging future members of the kidney care team and scientists by increasing interest in kidney medicine and broadening the ASN Alliance's
outreach and appeal.
c. Providing a professional home that promotes and accelerates growth, opportunities, and advancement throughout all stages of a member's
career.

4. Create dynamic educational tools and environments, assertively communicate information about kidney medicine, identify opportunities to utilize
health care data to screen for and protect kidney health, and engage everyone interested in kidney diseases by:
a. Curating content, including continuing education, certification and recertification, and peer-reviewed literature.
b. Producing content that reaches current and new audiences, organizing this content thematically, and connecting channels used to distribute
content, while maintaining the ASN Alliance's focus on credibility and excellence.
c. Creating a rich environment that elevates knowledge, understanding, partnerships, and other interactions.

5. Advocating for policies that empower patients and their care partners, the kidney care team and scientists, health systems, payers, and other
stakeholders with a role in kidney health by:
a. Advancing policies through federal legislative and regulatory advocacy that promote kidney health, transform transplant and increase access to
donor kidneys, and champion health equity and eliminate disparities.
