World Kidney Day planning – continues apace !
World Kidney Day - 13th March 2014
World Kidney Day (WKD) is an annual global awareness and education event, held this year on 13th March 2014. The event provides the perfect opportunity to get out in the community and share the WKD message with friends, family and people you meet. It is also a chance to raise awareness of the importance to life of your kidneys, how you can look after yourself and the risk factors for kidney disease - you might just save a life!
Since its inception in 2006, the global campaign highlights a particular theme every year, which for 2014 is Chronic Kidney Disease and Ageing. For further details on what is planned around the world, visit www.worldkidneyday.org.
This year the UK initiative is being led by the Kidney Charities Core Group comprising five leading kidney charities - The National Kidney Federation (NKF), Kidney Research UK, the BKPA, Kids Kidney Research and the PKD Charity.
We have adopted a slightly more general theme for the UK this year which is:
Kidney health matters - help reduce the risk to your kidneys
Further details are available through the UK website:
where you will find support, advice and ideas for activities and downloadable resources.
