 The ASN Health Care Justice Committee is charged with identifying opportunities to promote justice in health care and society and influencing social determinants of health, particularly in populations at risk for and overburdened with kidney diseases.  Acknowledging that all kidney health policy should be rooted in the principle of justice, it is incumbent upon all kidney health professionals to seek just and equitable social conditions for their patients, their colleagues, and their community.
