Kidney Health Australia says it is possible to raise the number of kidney transplants for remote community residents, but many challenges lie in way.
The lead singer of the pioneering band Yothu Yindi passed away in the Northern Territory last week after a battle with kidney disease.
In a statement, his family said they wanted to increase the number of remote transplant recipients.
The group's Medical Director Dr. Timothy Mathew says the rate of transplants of the Indigenous population is lower than the non-Indigenous rate.
