IPNA World Kidney Day 2023 Contest: Submit your proposal


Dear colleagues,

The 2023 World Kidney Day campaign has declared 2023 to be the year of “Kidney Health for All – Preparing for the unexpected, supporting the vulnerable” and will focus on raising awareness about disastrous events, natural or man-made, international or local, and their impact on people living with kidney disease whose access to appropriate diagnostic services, treatment, and care is hindered.

Disasters are divided into 2 basic groups: natural and man-made. Among the natural disasters are earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, floods, and fires. Among the man-made disasters are war, pollution, nuclear explosions, fires, hazardous materials exposures, explosions, and transportation accidents. The World Health Organization uses the term “complex humanitarian disaster” to refer to a specific type of man-made disaster: a combination of civil strife and conflict leading to a mass exodus of people and the events that follow, such as disease and destruction of property.

Disaster medical services are designed to direct limited resources to the greatest number of individuals. 

IPNA offers a grant to the best project for IPNA 2023 WKD in order to promote activities to calls policymakers, health care services, governments, industry, as well as people living with kidney disease and their carers, to be prepared for unexpected events to avoid any disruption in access to diagnosis, treatment, and care.

We encourage you to apply and help us be prepared to support our vulnerable pediatric population with kidney diseases.

Learn more about the IPNA World Kidney Day Contest HERE. The link for the online submission is placed there.

The extended deadline for submission of proposals is February 16, 2023 at 12:00 AM CET

Best wishes,

Florencio McCarthy

IPNA World Kidney Day Committee Chair
