Urge Congress to Support Kidney Research and Innovation to address COVID-19

We need your help to secure $100 million for COVID-19 research at NIDDK and $200 million for innovation at KidneyX to address challenges facing people with kidney diseases during the pandemic.

COVID-19 poses unique challenges to people with kidney disease, and early evidence suggests that COVID-19 can cause kidney injury – further stressing our kidney health system.

ASN and 27 organizations representing kidney patients, health care professionals, and providers are calling on Congress to provide emergency funding for COVID-19 research and innovation to meet these challenges.

Your legislators need to hear from you as a constituent that funding for research and innovation is critical for addressing kidney health during the pandemic.
