Through extensive research and technology, APKD has developed innovation that has resulted in an additional 15,000 kidney donations to date.
We are proud to provide a donor support program to help alleviate many of the financial concerns a potential donor may face. Our donors receive travel reimbursement and compensation for lost wages, better enabling them to focus on their lifesaving gift and recovery from surgery.
The APKD is expanding its transplant center network across the U.S. By including more kidney transplant centers, the APKD can increase the number of transplants, ensure a sufficient pool of donors and help keep costs low.
If your hospital is interested in becoming part of the APKD transplant center network, please contact us to schedule a free, no-obligation webinar. The presentation will explain the entire process, including how our state-of-the-art software works to create kidney paired donations.
The Alliance for Paired Kidney Donation (APKD), established in 2006, is a 501c3 with global reach that manages an industry-leading kidney registry powered by a Nobel prize winning algorithm. APKD revolutionized kidney donation by performing the world’s first non-simultaneous altruistic donor chain, and the first international chain. APKD’s commitment to innovation, research, education, technology and generosity, allows it to fulfill its mission of saving lives by securing a living donor kidney transplant for every patient who needs one.
