Infórmate helps Hispanics/Latinos with kidney failure and their families learn about the options, risks and benefits of living and deceased donor kidney transplants so that they can make informed decisions about what is best for them. The website was developed to address the apparent lack of information about living kidney donation among Hispanics/Latinos. The site also debunks any myths and misinformation people might have and explains that living donors can have children, exercise, work and have a normal sex life after donating a kidney.
