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 2017 theme is ‘Kidney Disease and Obesity'.
The UK initiative is led by the Kidney Charities Together Group comprising the five leading UK kidney charities. For further details see About Us
We encourage 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.
We are starting to plan for 2017 so do please keep checking this website, make a note of the date in your diary. In the meantime, do please have a look around the website for details of the 2016 campaign.
The 2017 World Kidney Day campaign in the UK is supported through grants from Amgen (Europe) GmbH, Fresenius Medical Care, Otsuka Pharmaceuticals UK and Pharmacosmos UK
