World Kidney Day 2015: work together to raise awareness

WKD 2015 left imgJoin forces and plan your activity. World Kidney Day (WKD) 2015 is less than two months away, so start pinning your activities on the world map.

Collaboration is key

World Kidney Day is not a truly global campaign without your help. The more we shout about the importance of kidney health, the more the issue will stick in people’s mind and attract attention from health authorities.

Thanks to our 10 year partnership, founding organizations the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and International Federation of Kidney Foundations (IFKF) have access to a global network of affiliated national foundations and societies as well as a wide community of concerned and highly motivated individuals, groups and organizations.

Get in touch with your local society to find out what is happening in your area to make your WKD event more effective. CLICK HERE to meet the WKD Champions, affiliated national foundations and societies.

ISN and IFKF affiliates can contact the local representatives of the WKD 2015 corporate partners and supporter to strengthen collaborations. CLICK HERE to see the WKD 2015 partners and supporter.

New materials

Non-for-profit local societies and foundations are the life force of World Kidney Day. WKD has designed a signature block that incorporates your logo with the WKD one.

CLICK HERE to download the signature block and add your logo(s). You can use the signature on all your posters, leaflets, banners and other WKD materials.

New toolkit

Prevention starts at home, but also in the workplace. Raise awareness about kidney health and the importance of prevention to your colleagues and business contacts! The Corporate Toolkit has tips on how to organize a simple and impactful WKD event at work. Protect your kidneys and your workforce. A healthy team is a key factor to a successful company.

CLICK HERE to download the Corporate Toolkit and learn more about how to get started.

Last but not least, do not forget to pin your event on the WKD event map. On the new website, head to “Get Involved”, follow the steps to add your event and share what you are organizing.
