World Kidney Day

Thursday, 8th March 2018

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 2018 theme is 'Kidney Disease and Women's Health'.

The UK initiative is led by the Kidney Charities Together Group comprising the four 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.
