The APKD is driven by our mission to save lives by securing a living donor kidney transplant for every patient who needs one.

Living donor kidneys provide a better quality of life and longevity for transplant patients. The APKD uses proprietary software and a Nobel prize-winning algorithm to match one incompatible pair with another. A scoring rubric, developed by a team of healthcare professionals, is used help find the best possible match. The APKD offers transplant center partners the most comprehensive donor support program in the nation. In addition to covering transplant-related expenses, the APKD also offers comprehensive insurance for all living donors against any complications related to their nephrectomy.  

Programs and services utilized by the APKD provide relief to renal patients and address community kidney transplants needs by including incompatible pairs in the paired donation registry. With inclusion of those patients in the registry, the APKD is seeing more than a 50% rise in matches. Meaning 50% more kidney patients are finding the gift of life.
