- Patient Advocates and Broader Kidney Care Community,in partnership with the Forum, Unveil Disease "Hot Spots" -

WASHINGTON, March 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Kidney Care Partners (KCP) - an alliance of patient advocates, dialysis professionals, care providers and manufacturers working together to improve quality of care for individuals with kidney disease and kidney failure - today expressed alarm regarding the racial disparity among those suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), otherwise known as kidney failure. KCP, as part of its efforts to recognize March as National Kidney Month, announced that it has joined forces with the National Minority Quality Forum to raise awareness about this disparity and to ensure access to quality dialysis care throughout the United States.

The partnership between Kidney Care Partners and the Forum will help dialysis providers and kidney care stakeholders fulfill their common mission of education about the rising epidemic of chronic kidney disease and the importance of improving the delivery of and access to quality care.

The Forum is a research and educational organization dedicated to ensuring that high-risk racial and ethnic populations and communities receive optimal health care. This nonprofit, nonpartisan organization integrates data and expertise in support of initiatives to eliminate health disparities. Founded in 1998 by Gary Puckrein PhD, the Forum supports national and local efforts to eliminate the disproportionate burden of premature death and preventable illness in racial and ethnic minorities and other special populations.

"Our partnership with Kidney Care Partners will enable us to localize data on Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) prevalence and End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) incidence by various cohorts, identify trends, and forecast risk." said the Forum's Puckrein
