The COVID-19 Kidney Care Challenge aims to identify solutions that can reduce the transmission of coronavirus among people with kidney disease and/or reduce risk of kidney damage among people who contract COVID-19. The challenge seeks a broad range of solutions from healthcare providers, staff, patients, caregivers, and other organizations and stakeholders. These solutions could be applicable in settings such as dialysis centers, clinics, hospitals, homes, and transport. KidneyX is particularly interested in solutions that could be implemented without requiring significant time, expertise, money, or other resources.
