World Kidney Day (WKD) is celebrated internationally every second Thursday in March to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys. This year, the theme of WKD is: Kidney Health for All – Preparing for the unexpected, supporting the vulnerable.
“People with kidney disease are among the most vulnerable people in an emergency because of their ongoing need for consistently coordinated care, which is often lifelong and involves complex ongoing treatment. The impact of COVID-19 on the health system has placed additional strain on this vulnerable population in recent years.”– World Kidney Day Organization
