|Abstract:||The demand for kidney transplantation continues to exceed the availability of deceased donor kidneys. Balancing the overarching principles of the optimal use of (utility) and equal access to (equity) this scarce resource requires a sophisticated allocation system. This review will examine how various factors are addressed in allocation systems around the world to strike a balance between utility and equity.|
