Abstract

The official history of the Kuratorium fuer Heimdialyse (KfH) states that it was created in October 1969. Today it is the leading provider of end-stage renal replacement therapy in Germany and responsible for more than 16,000 patients in several hundred centers throughout the Federal Republic of Germany. How KfH was created is curiously omitted from its official web site, 1 and the purpose of this article is to describe how this organization was started in 1969.
