This infographic describes key information about patients in 2019, who received dialysis treatment or who were living with a kidney transplant. ANZDATA has committed to publishing an infographic in this format for five years. It has primarily been developed to be used by people who currently require dialysis or transplant care. It can also be used by family members of patients, health care staff, health service managers and health policy teams.
