Providing dialysis in the most remote parts of Australia
Remote Indigenous people in Central Australia are 15 to 30 times more likely to suffer from kidney disease caused by a wide variety of factors. Families must move off their country and come to Alice Springs for dialysis treatment. Consequently, communities are left without elder leadership, families are broken and culture is weakened. Patients suffer from isolation and depression, restricted by a dialysis machine for their foreseeable future. Our aim is to improve the lives of people who have kidney disease by providing dialysis services and health education out in remote communities so that our families and culture can remain strong.
