Kidney Health Australia is the national peak body for kidney disease, and promotes good kidney health though education, advocacy, research and support. A not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping people with kidney disease, to improve their health outcomes and quality of life, and that of their families and carers.


ANZSIN is a sub-group of the Australia and New Zealand Society of Nephrology. We are an Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) based special interest group in Interventional Nephrology. We encourage the setting of standards, training, experience/expertise along with safe and effective practice within Interventional Nephrology for Nephrologists primarily: addressing Renal Biopsy, Cuffed and non-Cuffed Catheter Insertion, Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter Insertion (nephrological), and Arterio-Venous Fistula formation (e.g. snuff box) and complication diagnosis and correction (e.g. Angioplasty and Stenting).


The Australia and New Zealand Dialysis and Transplant Registry (ANZDATA) collects and reports the incidence, prevalence and outcome of dialysis treatment and kidney transplantation for patients with end stage kidney disease across Australia and New Zealand. The Registry was established in 1977 from the merger of separate dialysis and transplant registries to provide information on the patterns and outcomes of dialysis and kidney transplantation, and to support safety and quality activities and the planning of appropriate health services.


The Australasian Kidney Trials Network is a not-for-profit collaborative research group that designs, conducts and supports investigator-initiated clinical trials with the aim of improving life for people with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).


Cochrane Kidney and Transplant (previously known as the Cochrane Renal Group) was initially established on 1st March 1997  with its editorial base in Lyon in France.  In May 2000, the editorial base moved to  Sydney, Australia and in 2010 we celebrated the 10th  anniversary  of Cochrane Kidney and Transplant in Sydney.

We are one of  53 Cochrane Review Groups that are  part of Cochrane, an international, independent not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of health care. Cochrane produces and disseminates systematic reviews of research on healthcare interventions. Its major product is the  Cochrane Library.


The aim of Kidney Health Australia – Caring for Australasians with Renal Impairment (KHA-CARI) is to improve the health care and outcomes of paediatric and adult patients with kidney disease by helping clinicians and health care workers to adhere to evidence-based clinical practice as often as possible.



The ASM is hosted by Australian and New Zealand Society of Nephrology.

The aims of the Society are to promote and support the study of the kidney and urinary tract in health and disease, and to ensure the highest professional standards for the practice of nephrology in Australia and New Zealand.
