Celebrated every year on the second Thursday of March, World Kidney Day (WKD) is the global campaign that aims at increasing awareness of the importance of our kidneys to our health and of reducing the impact of kidney disease and its associated problems worldwide. The WKD campaign is only possible thanks to the support of our global supporters:
We have a large awareness campaign to run to promote preventive behaviors, encourage early screening of people with diabetes and hypertension, and stimulate positive thinking about organ donation and transplantation. We need the means to do so and you can help!

World Kidney Day (WKD) is a global awareness campaign aimed at raising awareness about the importance of our kidneys. WKD is a joint initiative of the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the International Federation of Kidney Foundations(IFKF) who, together, generate WKD campaign content, educational material and activities. The annual campaign is overseen by the WKD Steering Committee composed of nephrology and transplantation experts who live and work in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, South America and North America. Financial support is solicited with the sole purpose of carrying out the campaign’s core activities and achieving campaign objectives. Our supporters provide financial support to carry out our activities, help us disseminate our message and strengthen our efforts, which WKD is very grateful for. However, supporters do not take part in any of the decision making and do not influence any of the content or messages disseminated by WKD.
