World Kidney Day

2017 World Kidney Day will be held on Thursday 9 March 2017

World Kidney Day is an annual global campaign to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys, and to shine a light on prevention and early detection of kidney disease, which affects an estimated 1.7 million Australians - 90% of whom don't know they have it. 

While the mortality associated with many chronic diseases including some cancers is stable and even declining, two Australians every hour continue to die with kidney related disease. Visit www.worldkidneyday.org


World Kidney Day  is held on the second Thursday of March each year
Established in 2006, the aim of World Kidney Day is to raise awareness of the importance of kidneys to an individual’s overall health and to reduce the frequency and impact of kidney disease and its associated health problems worldwide. Every year, World Kidney Day highlights a particular health education theme.
