Marked annually on the second Thursday of March, World Kidney Day aims at raising awareness on the importance of kidney health and reducing the frequency and impact of kidney disease and related diseases among the population. 1 out of 10 people suffer from a kidney disease and millions of people die annually due to complications from kidney disease. Diagnosed early in time, chronic kidney disease can be treated, thereby reducing the risk of complications and the number of deaths caused by them.
World Kidney Day aims to raise awareness of the fact that kidney disease is a common, highly dangerous but treatable disease if caught in time.
