World Kidney Day (WKD) is a joint initiative of the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the International Federation of Kidney Foundations (IFKF).
Seven years on from the first campaign, World Kidney Day (WKD) has turned into a global phenomenon. On March 14, 2013, medical professionals, government officials, the general public, celebrities and patients will take action locally. Past World Kidney Days have seen more than 600 events in well over 90 countries participating in the World Kidney Day celebrations!
In the most colorful way, they raised awareness about our amazing kidneys. The WKD website became was the starting point for celebrations worldwide.
The next World Kidney Day will be held on Thursday 14 March 2013. The theme for 2013 will focus on Acute Kidney Injury. To get the 2013 campaign started or for more information on World Kidney Day, visit the World Kidney Day website or contact the WKD Secretariat:
The mission of World Kidney Day is to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys to our overall health and to reduce the frequency and impact of kidney disease and its associated health problems worldwide.
Health authorities worldwide will have to deal with high and escalating costs if no action is taken to treat the growing number of people with CKD. On World Kidney Day all governments are encouraged to take action and invest in further kidney screening.
