Canberra Kidney Day Launch


Kidney Health Australia Parliament Dr, Canberra ACT 2600 Australia

Date of event

9 March 2023 


On WKD, Kidney Health Australia went to Parliament House in Canberra to do two things. First, we launched a groundbreaking Deloitte Access Economics report, which outlines the economic and social impacts early detection of CKD could have on Australians if there is more money invested into prevention of CKD. In attendance were key industry stakeholders, clinicians, Parliamentarians and supported by 10 community advocates. The launch was presented as a panel discussion. The second activity was testing Parliamentarians for kidney disease for the first time. Over 30 politicians got their kidneys checked at our event and spoke with local community ambassadors about their experience with kidney disease. Parliamentarians were also presented a summary report and outline of prevalence of CKD in their electorates.
