National Indigenous Kidney Transplantation Taskforce

In June 2018, the Minister for Indigenous Health, the Hon Ken Wyatt MP, commissioned an expert panel, led by the Transplantation Society of Australia and New Zealand (TSANZ), to undertake a comprehensive review into the hurdles, service gaps and practical challenges faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients receiving treatment for kidney disease. The expert panel provided a Performance Report in March 2019. After receiving the Report, the Minister for Indigenous Health announced funding to establish a National Indigenous Kidney Transplantation Taskforce, which is responsible for implementing and evaluating the Report’s priority recommendations, as outlined in the Executive Summary.
