WELCOME TO SKCF
The Sustainable Kidney Care Foundation provides affordable and sustainable treatment for kidney injury where none exists. The Foundation emphasizes the diagnosis and management of reversible treatable acute kidney injury in women and children. The Foundation supports training in care and research for those involved in the delivery of kidney services in parts of the world where little or no treatment is available. SKCF is a 501(c) 3 registered charity
The Sustainable Kidney Care Foundation was organized as a public charity in the USA with the mission to “provide treatment for kidney injury where none exists”. Our vision is to reduce mortality from treatable acute kidney injury (AKI). We focus on saving women of childbearing age and children, especially those under 5 years of age.
These goals are consistent with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030.
SDG 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages (1)
3.1 By 2030, reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births
3.2 By 2030, end preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5 years of age, with all countries aiming to reduce neonatal mortality to at least as low as 12 per 1,000 live births and under-5 mortality to at least as low as 25 per 1,000 live births
3.3 By 2030, end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases and combat hepatitis, water-borne diseases and other communicable diseases
3.4 By 2030, reduce by one third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being
SKCF also supports training in care and research for those involved in the delivery of kidney care in parts of the world where little or no local treatment is available.
SKCF works very closely with the major professional organizations, the International Society of Nephrology, the International Pediatric Nephrology Association, and the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis, academia and industry to promote kidney awareness, education, prevention and treatment.
