One in ten people have kidney disease in New Zealand

Kidney Health New Zealand is a national charity working towards better kidney health for all New Zealaners.  Everyone has kidneys and anyone can get kidney disease.  Early detection of kidney disease is key to reducing the impact it has on individuals, their families and the wider community.

Kidney disease is tough - getting checked isn't.   Ask your doctor for a:

  • Blood Pressure Check
  • Urine test to check for protein
  • A blood test

Request a copy of your results and get to know your numbers.  These tell you where your kidney function is and are a way to track changes over time.  If you aren't sure call 0800 543 639 and ask us!  We are happy to interpret or further explain the results and what they mean.

Support us.  KHNZ is a charity, we have to fundraise to do the work we do.   Support us.   Take this opportunity to support better kidney health for all New Zealanders; make a donation, run a fundraiser, make your next challenge a fundraising and awareness opportunity.  Need an idea... click here
