The World Kidney Day initiative in the UK is led by Kidney Charities Together:
Kidney Research UK, is the largest funder dedicated to research into the causes and prevention of kidney disease. They also raise awareness of kidney-related issues amongst the general public and their patient information service provides advice and literature on how best to deal with each type of kidney condition, helping millions of people better understand the disease.
About 70,000 adults and children in the UK have Polycystic Kidney Disease or PKD – life-threatening inherited conditions that can cause renal (kidney) failure and affect other organs in the body. Over 12 million children and adults worldwide have PKD.
We support those affected, fund research and raise awareness.
