EKHA becomes a Non-Profit Association under Belgian law

We are delighted to announce that EKHA has been incorporated as a Non-Profit Association (VZW) under Belgian law as of 26 August 2019.

The new legal status boosts EKHA’s impact and credibility by making it a more independent and transparent entity, with power and mandate to represent the kidney community in policy and strategy fora. Through our new statutes, a clear and efficient framework for good governance for EKHA has been put in place.

The transition also allows EKHA and its members to benefit from multiple opportunities, such as applying for grants and joining initiatives at the EU level.

Empowered with our new legal status, we look forward to continue working towards our aim of reducing the burden of kidney disease in Europe and improving patients’ lives.
