World Kidney Day (WKD) is an annual global awareness and education event, held on 13 March 2014. The event provides the perfect opportunity to get out in the community and share the WKD message with friends, family and people you meet. It is also a chance to raise awareness of the importance to life of your kidneys, how you can look after yourself and the risk factors for kidney disease - you might just save a life!
