Kidney transplant is the best treatment for children with kidney failure. It provides the best clinical outcomes and quality of life. However, organ supply is rather limited. In Hong Kong, the average waiting time for a child to receive kidney transplant is 3.7 years . During this period, children have to undergo dialysis and may suffer from dialysis-associated complications. HKPNS supports organ donation, and it is beyond doubt that transplant would bring hope and new life to children with kidney failure.
