How was infoKID developed?

Launched in 2014, infoKID was a partnership project of three organisations: the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), the British Association for Paediatric Nephrology (BAPN) and Kidney Care UK (formerly the British Kidney Patients Association).

The RCPCH has over 20,000 members in the UK and internationally and plays a major role in postgraduate medical education, professional standards, research and policy. Its mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people across the world, by supporting paediatricians, shaping policy and improving practice..

The BAPN sets out to improve the standard of medical care of children with kidney disease in the UK. It formulates opinions on policy, and runs clinical and scientific meetings to advance the knowledge and skills of children's kidney doctors.

Kidney Care UK is the UK's leading kidney patient support charity. It exists to improve the lives of kidney patients by giving support, information and financial aid to families affected by kidney disease.

infoKID is now managed by Kidney Care UK and the BAPN.
