World Kidney Day: March 14, 2024

World Kidney Day

Join the NephU Community and advocates around the world in advancing equitable access to care and optimal medication. Together, we can raise awareness and help reduce the frequency and impact of kidney disease.

New therapies hold the promise of improving lives worldwide. Yet, disparities persist due to lack of CKD awareness, limited knowledge, and high costs. World Kidney Day calls on everyone to raise awareness about CKD risk factors, boost health literacy, and support long-term treatment adherence. Empowering patients through advocacy and community engagement is key to better health outcomes.
