WELCOME TO YAP SPACE Minimize

Kidney Health Australia - Education Advocacy Research Support

Welcome to our social networking area - chat with members of our Australian kidney community. A space where Aussies and others world wide with chronic kidney disease can meet, chat, share and support each other. We hope this may alleviate some isolation felt when living with a chronic condition.

It is important to share your story with others - you are not alone!

YAP Space is regularly monitored and moderated by staff from our highly qualified health team
If you have questions but prefer a confidential reply, email KHIS@kidney.org.au and a Health Manager can send you appropriate information via email.
