The Better Evidence And Translation – Chronic Kidney Disease (BEAT-CKD) is funded by a NHMRC Program Grant (APP1092957) that supports four research and translation platforms, including the ANZDATA Registry. BEAT-CKD aims to improve the lives of people living with chronic kidney disease in Australia and globally by generating high-quality research evidence to inform healthcare decisions made by patients, health professionals, and policy makers.
