People from low- and middle-income countries are disproportionately affected by Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), a global public health issue, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. More than 850 million people worldwide have renal disease, with a disproportionate share of these individuals living in low and middle-income countries where access to care is severely restricted. Recent researches revealed that Africans appear to be at a higher risk for having CKD. They are afflicted earlier in life and proceed to kidney failure more quickly. The quick epidemiological transition that resulted in high and rising rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus, as well as a heavy burden of infectious illnesses and a genetic susceptibility to CKD, is partially responsible for this disproportionate risk.

Through our advocacy drive, we have engaged the local and global community through diplomatic dialogues, webinars, and raising concerns on radio and television stations.

We remain relentless in our advocacy for collaborative support and attention to better kidney healthcare in West African countries, through engaging Governments, community leaders and stakeholders, local and international NGOs, businessmen and policy makers.

We seek collaboration, partnership and support towards advocating for kidney patients (especially those receiving dialysis) and influencing better kidney healthcare policy in West Africa.
