World Kidney Day, 9 March

Celebrated every year on the second Thursday of March, World Kidney Day (WKD)
is the global awareness campaign that aims at increasing awareness of the importance of our
kidneys to our health and reduce the impact of kidney disease and its associated problems

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a non-communicable disease that affects 1 in 10 people
worldwide. While severity can vary, CKD is incurable and causes the patient to need lifelong
care. As the incidence of kidney disease escalates, World Kidney Day plays a crucial al role in educating the public, the medical community and governments and encouraging prevention and early detection of kidney disease.
