The NIDDK is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

NKUDIC was established in 1987 to increase knowledge and understanding about diseases of the kidneys and urologic system among people with these conditions and their families, health care professionals, and the general public. To carry out this mission, NKUDIC works closely with a coordinating panel of representatives from Federal agencies; voluntary organizations on the national level; professional groups; and State health departments to identify and respond to informational needs about kidney and urologic diseases.
