World Kidney Day

World Kidney Day (WKD) is a joint initiative between the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the International Federation of Kidney Foundations (IFKF).

World Kidney Day is a global campaign that aims to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys to overall health and to reduce the frequency and impact of kidney disease and its associated health problems.
