World Kidney Day

World Kidney Day (WKD) is an annual global awareness and education event. 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!

Since its inception in 2006, the global campaign highlights a particular theme every year, which for 2014 was Chronic Kidney Disease and Ageing.

In the UK we adopted the following theme:

KIDNEY HEALTH MATTERS - HELP REDUCE THE RISK TO YOUR KIDNEYS

The 2014 event on 13th March has now taken place.

You can see a selection of the activities that took place around the UK on the global World Kidney Day Map.

Do look at the various pages on our UK site which contain useful information including the Reducing Your Risk information sheet.

The Kidney Charities Together group will be thinking about plans for the 2015 UK campaign so do add the website to your favourites/bookmarks and check back soon.
