Renal directions

Better services and improved kidney health for Victorians.

Renal directions: better services and improved kidney health for Victorians outlines the Victorian Government’s priorities in improving services for people who are at risk of, or are experiencing Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

The document aims to improve renal services and ensure the renal system is sustainable.

Its longer-term goal is to reduce the incidence of, and mortality from CKD in Victoria.

Renal directions establishes the ways in which the government, in partnership with health services, primary care providers, the Victorian Renal Health Clinical Network (RHCN), and health and community services, will work together in the coming years.

The four strategic directions are to:

  • promote healthy living and reduce renal risk factors
  • improve early detection and management of kidney disease
  • improve services for people with chronic kidney disease
  • strengthen and sustain renal services.
