NKDEP is an initiative of the National Institutes of Health, designed to reduce the morbidity
and mortality caused by kidney disease and its complications.

NKDEP aims to raise awareness of the seriousness of kidney disease, the importance of
testing those at high risk (those with diabetes, high blood pressure, or a family history of
kidney failure), and the availability of treatment to prevent or slow kidney failure.
