Information & Education
The IKA works to improve the lives of patients and their families by disseminating information on kidney diseases to new patients and their families, especially with regard to the financial and social effects of kidney failure, improving the conditions and quality of dialysis in the treatment units and providing practical assistance to enable the patients and their family to live as near normal a life as possible.
An important, additional purpose of the Association is to support and encourage research into the incidence, prevention and treatment of kidney disease. And to foster a better understanding and knowledge of this major health problem, through public and professional education. As a voluntary body, the IKA depends mainly upon fundraising to match its major commitment to finance medical research and public education, the issue of multi-organ donor cards and to support the organ donor.
