We Care

We are deeply concerned for the people of Ukraine, including the VALOR-CKD clinical trial patients, investigators, site staff and our CRO colleagues who we have worked with for many years. We are horrified by what they, and all of the Ukrainian people, are having to endure defending their homeland against a brutal Russian invasion. We are supporting the effort to provide emergency aid to families in Ukraine through a charitable contribution to The UN Refugee Agency. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Ukraine as they navigate this unjust and unprovoked invasion of their country.

We proudly support programs and offer resources for advocacy groups, healthcare providers, and our local community. In particular, we believe we have an opportunity to make a real impact for patients suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) and metabolic acidosis. An estimated 3 million people in the United Stated suffer from later stage CKD and metabolic acidosis. We’re working hard to provide the potential first FDA-approved chronic treatment to help these patients and help slow the progression of CKD.

Tricida is a proud sponsor of the National Kidney Foundation (NKF). We support educational programs and efforts by NKF to expand awareness about the complications and causes of CKD. Locally, our Tricida team joined the NKF Northern California community during the Annual San Francisco Kidney Walk to support patients and their families and help raise much needed dollars to support kidney disease research. Our organization as a whole, and over 80% of our employees, contributed financially to this important cause.

As we strive to improve the lives of CKD patients with metabolic acidosis, we are proud sponsors of the American Kidney Fund and KDIGO. KDIGO is a global nonprofit organization developing and implementing evidence-based clinical practice guidelines in kidney disease.
