Kidney Health Week

Kidney Health Week, 5-11 March 2018 

During 5-11 March 2018 we will celebrate Kidney Health Week, raising awareness about kidney health across Australia. One in three people living in Australia is at increased risk of kidney disease, and 90% of kidney function can be lost without experiencing any symptoms.

Kidney Health Week 2017

In 2017 Kidney Health Australia aligned Kidney Health Week (5–11 March) with World Kidney Day, on Thursday 9 March. In 2017 we shared the World Kidney Day theme of 'Kidney Disease and Obesity – Healthy Lifestyle for Healthy Kidneys'.

In 2017 we promoted a Kidney Health Australia report that highlights evidence linking obesity to the development of CKD, kidney stones, and kidney cancer. Read “Obesity and chronic kidney disease: the hidden impact” report.
