World Kidney Day

IPNA Supports World Kidney Day



IPNA wants to promote education and screening in children with kidney diseases all over the world.

Kidney Day is a wonderful opportunity to achieve this goal. Each year, IPNA organises a contest to encourage such an action by providing USD 5,000 to the pediatric nephrology center(s) from a developing country throughout the World.
Call for 2023 proposals (closed):
The submission deadline has already passed, and we cannot accept any further proposals for the IPNA WKD Contest 2023.

World Kidney Day 2023 – Kidney Health for All

Preparing for the unexpected, supporting the vulnerable!

The significant impact of disastrous events, be they local (earthquake, floods, war, extreme weather) or global (the COVID-19 pandemic), affects the functioning and living conditions of the community as a whole, by definition resulting in one or more of the following consequences: human, material, economic and environmental losses and impacts.[1] Those affected by chronic disease, of which kidney patients represent more than 850 million people worldwide, are particularly affected by these disruptions, as the ability to access proper diagnostic services, treatments and care is greatly jeopardized.
