In 2020, in its 15th year of existence, World Kidney Day was marked on March 12. The campaign aimed to raise awareness of the high and increasing burden of kidney diseases worldwide and the need for strategies for kidney diseases prevention and management.
Despite the growing burden of kidney disease worldwide, kidney health disparity and inequity are still widespread. Early diagnosis, prevention and delay of progression are sustainable options to reduce costs and consequences of kidney diseases for individuals and countries. Yet, barriers to available, accessible, adequate and quality kidney care persist.
The Impact Report of WKD 2020 takes a look at some of the actions and how the collective efforts this past 12 March made a strong and fruitful impact worldwide.
Thanks to all World Kidney Day 2020 Supporters & Champions!
