Organizations from across the state created the Illinois Kidney Care Alliance (IKCA) to highlight the needs of people with kidney disease. As a coalition of health advocates and professionals, community and patient groups, providers, and businesses, we focus on raising awareness about people who suffer from End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), a condition also known as kidney failure.
IKCA is proud to have The Chronic Disease Coalition (CDC) as a founding member of our coalition. CDC is a nonprofit dedicated to protecting the rights of chronic disease patients against discrimination. Founded in 2015, CDC is comprised of patients, family members, health care providers, advocacy groups, medical professionals and others who care about the millions of Americans who suffer from chronic diseases. It works to advocate for people living with chronic conditions like diabetes, kidney disease, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, cancer and other diseases.
In Illinois, more than 30,000 people suffer from kidney failure. IKCA’s goal is to protect this vulnerable population, including those on life-sustaining dialysis and those waiting for a kidney transplant. For more information, please visit our website.
