The Board will develop and build a platform for the organization in the public health arena related to the public health importance and consequences of kidney disease. The three mandates are to (1) assist on a policy level bringing the best possible medical care to patients with kidney disease, (2) support the practice and profession of nephrology in a time of change, and (3) advocate for resources to support kidney disease research.


Members are appointed by the Chair of the Public Policy Board in consultation with the Council.
