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. The three other platforms are Australian Kidney Trials Network (AKTN), Kidney Health Australia Caring for Australians with Renal Impairment (KHA-CARI Guidelines) and Cochrane Kidney and Transplantation (Cochrane).
The National Indigenous Kidney Transplantation Taskforce (NIKTT) is an initiative of the Transplantation Society of Australia and New Zealand, funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health, to improve access to kidney transplantation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The NIKTT’s objectives include enhancing data collection for waitlisting, piloting models of care, and evaluting cultural bias initiatives. The NIKTT Secretariat works within the ANZDATA Registry, housed within the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute.
