World Kidney Day is an annual global campaign to raise awareness of the importance of kidney health, and this year, with International Women’s Day being commemorated on the same day, the focus is on ‘Kidneys and Women’s Health’.

Chronic kidney disease affects approximately 195 million women worldwide and it is currently the 8th leading cause of death in women, with close to 600,000 deaths each year.

On its 13th anniversary, World Kidney Day promotes affordable and equitable access to health education, healthcare and prevention for kidney diseases for all women and girls in the world. Find out more at www.worldkidneyday.org
