Transplant Medications

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, many kidney transplanted patients have struggled to access their medications. Some medications have been in short supply due to pharmaceutical companies being understaffed to adhere to social distancing. Other medications have been affected by distribution channels being disrupted during the pandemic. Some patients have had challenges affording medications due to loss of employment, health insurance, among other barriers. This page is intended to be a resource for both Transplant Center Providers and Patients who are looking for resources for transplant-related medications. The Network’s goal is to keep transplanted recipients in optimal health and avoiding the loss of a transplanted kidney from the complications related to COVID-19.
