Strengthening kidney transplant programs in Guatemala

In 2013, a sister center partnership was set up between University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Fundanier (sponsored by ISN and The Transplantation Society). The ultimate goal of this collaboration was to establish a deceased donor program in Guatemala.

Thanks to training and engaged political efforts, the teams are setting up the basis for a deceased donor program and building a nephropathology lab. They are also making sure that all programs in the country adhere to the Declaration of Istanbul.

To take care of children with kidney disease, Fundanier also created a foundation for children with kidney disease. It is the only center that provides comprehensive pediatric nephrology care for children in Guatemala.
