Happy World Kidney Day!

5910 1024x768pxToday, we celebrate World Kidney Day. This year, World Kidney Day is raising awareness about kidney disease, specifically putting the accent on the important, yet rarely acknowledged, role that obesity plays in the development and progression of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

In this context, World Kidney Day has developed a joint position statement in collaboration with the World Obesity Federation.

We hope that you will find the information and policy recommendations compiled in this document useful for your work. We would greatly appreciate your support in disseminating the paper as widely as possible.
