Patients representing six countries in Southeast Europe—Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Romania, and Montenegro—will come together in Belgrade to take part in two main activities:

• The Union of Associations of Kidney Patients of the Republic of Serbia  and the Association of Dialysis and Transplant Patients “Organ donation is heroic act” have released a White paper about chronic kidney disease. The authors ave decided on the objectives for which they wish to work with medical professionals, authorities in the field, and decision-makers in order to enhance wound diagnostics and enable prompt and effective treatment of patients with chronic kidney  dieases. Additional support for this document and defined goals was also received from related organizations from the region (Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania and Bulgaria), primarily from the members of the Transplant Network of Southeast Europe – Seentransplnata, as well as from support group for parents and families of dialysis and transplanted children Hrabrica, from Croatia.

•The second event is a support walk with patients from the area and the nation, which will take place at Ada Ciganlija, a popular picnic spot in Belgrade. We will also issue a summons to citizens to come and walk in support of improved kidney health.
