President Trump issued a sweeping set of proposals aimed at improving medical care for the tens of millions of Americans and legal migrants (COFA Nations) who have kidney disease, a long-overlooked condition that kills more people than breast cancer.

Mr. Trump signed an executive order directing federal agencies to educate and treat people with early forms of kidney disease, to make kidney transplants easier to get, and to shift the financial incentives for clinics and doctors away from the existing system that relies heavily on dialysis.

The result will be more and faster transplants for those in need,” said Mr. Trump, who also said his administration would work to encourage the development of new treatments like artificial kidneys.
