On 25 March 2014, Live Kidney Donation Aotearoa launched its first stage – educational resources developed specially for potential kidney donors, those who are going through the kidney donation process and recipients. The Minister of Health, the Hon. Tony Ryall, spoke at this event of the need for live kidney donors:
These new education resources, Give a Kidney, Change a Life! - will help all renal departments to increase the number of live donor kidney transplants. I hope that all renal departments will use these resources as part of improving the live kidney donation service they offer to patients. Our goal is that more people with end stage renal disease can live normal lives.
