World Kidney Day

Thursday, 10th March 2016

World Kidney Day (WKD) is an annual global awareness and education event, held on the second Thursday in March. Every year, countless local, national and international events are organised by kidney charities, healthcare professionals, patient groups and individuals who want to make a difference.

The UK initiative is led by the Kidney Charities Together Group comprising the five leading UK kidney charities. For further details see About Us

The 2016 campaign has a specific focus on Kidney Disease & Children. We are encouraging everyone to get behind the campaign and try to organise an activity or event to draw public attention to the importance of kidney health - what can be done to protect kidneys before disease strikes, and to assist patients who already have chronic kidney disease.

The 2016 World Kidney Day campaign in the UK is supported by unrestricted grants from Fresenius Medical Care, Pharmacosmos UK and Westfield Health.
