Alliance for Home Dialysis formed to Increase Home Dialysis Accessibility

Fewer than 10% of people in America who are receiving dialysis treatment do so at home.  The National Summit on Home Dialysis Policy met on March 29, 2012 and developed recommendations to increase accessibility of home dialysis for those who would best benefit.  NKF participated in this important Summit.  An Alliance for Home Dialysis was formed to advance these recommendations.  Click on the link below to read the press release.
