Kidney Organ Trafficking

Patient Care – Education on Kidney Trafficking

In 2023,  the Canadian Association of Nephrology Nurses and Technologists (CANNT) developed a Kidney Organ Trafficking Pamphlet that can be shared with patients across Canada with factual information to patients, particularly in nephrology care. It is meant to bring awareness of organ trafficking.

We encourage healthcare professionals to share the available pamphlet at your institutions and centers to keep patients informed.

If you have any questions or comments about the information provided, please contact us at
