World Kidney Day

World Kidney Day Articles

World Kidney Day (WKD) is an annual global awareness and education event, held on the second Thursday in March. Every year, countless local, national and international events are organised by kidney charities, healthcare professionals, patient groups and individuals who want to make a difference.

In support of WKD we have compiled a collection of content from our journals and books focusing on this year’s theme, Kidney Disease and Children, all of which is freely available online until the 31st of May.
