Kidney Health Australia awarded funding investment to improve kidney disease outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

The peak body for kidney disease in Australia, Kidney Health Australia, is pleased to announce Federal Government funding of over $700k to support world-first clinical guidelines to improve the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Kidney Health Australia  CEO Chris Forbes said the funding was vital to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the rate of kidney disease in indigenous communities was twice as high as non-indigenous communities, with 1 in 5 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people having the indicators for chronic kidney disease. Download Media Release.
