AbstractThe current demand for transplant organs, particularly kidneys, far outweighs the supply in the United Kingdom. This problem is particularly severe for the black African and black Caribbean population, who have been shown to have a disproportionately greater presentation on kidney transplant waiting lists in some regions of the United Kingdom. The situation is clear: There is an urgent need to address the number of black African and black Caribbean patients requiring a kidney transplant, otherwise the human and economic costs will be high.
