Since its launch in 2006 the EKHA is committed to addressing the urgent need for action to raise awareness of kidney disease in Europe and in particular the benefits of early detection. The members work in cooperation with other health organizations at EU level to provide advice to the EU institutions and health bodies on research policies and programs of relevance to the kidney and related medical communities and promote awareness of such methods to the general public.
EKHA brings together five major European and international organizations representing kidney health stakeholders (patients, nurses, physicians and researchers):
CEAPIR (European Kidney Patients' Federation)
EDTNA/ERCA (European Dialysis and Transplant Nurses Association/ European Renal Care Association)
ERA-EDTA (European Kidney Patients' Federation)
IFKF (International Federation of Kidney Foundations)
ISN (International Society of Nephrology)
