The Alliance for Paired Donations exists to serve kidney patients through technology, education and generosity. Our mission is straightforward: to save lives by securing a living donor kidney transplant for every patient who needs one. As we seek to fulfill this mission, we are guided by the following core values:
Academic Excellence & Engagement: Adhering to the highest standards of academic integrity, with a commitment to sharing insights, experience and knowledge with the broader academic community
Altruism: Promoting altruism in the transplant community with respect
Commitment to Innovation: Being an innovative organization for discovering new medical approaches
Integrity: Holding to the highest standards, worthy of patient trust, seeking to do the right thing
Leadership in Transplant & Bioethics: Leading the way in ethical standards and scientific advances
Patient-Focused: Dedicated to the well-being of all patients
Sustainability: Fiscally prudent and solvent, generating funds to invest in innovations
Transparency: Operating in an open and accountable fashion
To help us fulfill this mission, the APKD recruits, educates and engages patients with kidney failure, living kidney donors and healthcare professionals. These outreach efforts play an essential role in helping people understand the extensive opportunities provided through the APKD and the Global Kidney Relief Program. With a growing network of transplant centers and medical professionals, we believe that kidney paired donation will account for 20% of all living kidney donor transplants in the future.
