World Kidney Day

World Kidney Day (WKD) is a global health awareness campaign that underscores the significance of kidneys and strives to diminish the prevalence and impact of kidney disease and its associated health challenges on a global scale.

Annually observed on the second Thursday of March, World Kidney Day began with 66 countries participating in 2006, and within two years, this number increased to 88. This initiative is a collaborative effort between the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the International Federation of Kidney Foundations (IFKF). The primary objective of WKD is to raise awareness about kidney conditions, which, although often treatable, tend to be a secondary health concern for a significant portion of the population.
