Abstract

Despite the stated goals of the transplant community and the majority of organ allocation systems, persistent racial disparities in pediatric kidney transplantation exist throughout the world. These disparities are evident in both living and deceased donor kidney transplantation and are independent of any clinical differences between racial groups. The reasons for these persistent disparities are multifactorial, reflecting both patient and provider barriers to care. In this review, we examine the most current findings regarding disparities in pediatric kidney transplantation and consider interventions which may help reduce those disparities.
