Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a progressive loss in kidney function over a period of months or years. CKD is a non-communicable disease and it affects 1 in 10 people worldwide. While severity can vary, CKD is incurable and causes the patient to need lifelong care. World Kidney Day aims at raising awareness about kidney health and reducing the frequency of kidney disease.
World Kidney Day takes place every year. All across the globe many hundred events are organised, from public screenings in Argentina to Zumba marathons in Malaysia. We do it all to create awareness. Awareness about preventive behaviors, awareness about risk factors, and awareness about how to live with a kidney disease. We do this because we want kidney health for all
