What is ANZDATA?

Who contributes to ANZDATA?

Every year, hospitals and dialysis facilities complete a survey about patients’ health and kidney failure treatment and sends this information to ANZDATA either by computer or by post.

Who funds ANZDATA?

ANZDATA is paid for by the Australian and New Zealand Governments, Kidney Health Australia and the Australia and New Zealand Society of Nephrology, and has one office that is located in Adelaide.
