The theme for 2017 is research. Rare disease research is crucial to providing patients with the answers and solutions they need, whether it’s a treatment, cure or improved care.

Thursday 9th March 2017 marks World Kidney Day (WKD) – an annual global awareness and education event.
This year the theme is Kidney Disease and Obesity.
Every year, countless local, national and international events are organised by kidney charities, healthcare professionals, patient groups and individuals.
We encourage everyone to get behind the campaign and try to organise an activity or event to draw public attention to the importance of kidney health – what can be done to protect kidneys before disease strikes, and to assist patients who already have chronic kidney disease.
