Toronto, Canada: Launch Of Transplant 1St Campaign

On March 6, 2024, the Kidney Patient and Donor Alliance of Canada (https://kidneyalliance.ca/) and its Patient Partner Coalition kicked off the “Transplant 1st Campaign” during an event held at our Kidney Advocacy Day, Queens Park, Toronto, Ontario. This campaign calls for the restructuring of the healthcare system to prioritize kidney transplant first (rather than dialysis), as the best treatment for kidney failure.

During the event, more than 30 patients, donors, and transplant 1st advocates, came together with more than 50 Ontario government policymakers, healthcare administrators, and care providers to discuss the need to increase kidney transplants and save millions of healthcare dollars.

Our warmest thanks to all the participating MPPs, staffers, patients, donors, caregivers and healthcare providers for attending and for partnering with the Patient Partner Coalition to advocate for Transplant 1st.
