GREAT CARE FOR LITTLE KIDNEYS. EVERYWHERE.
IPNA Supports World Kidney Day
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.
The World Kidney Day Joint Steering Committee has declared 2022 to be the year of “Kidney Health for All”. Specifically, it calls on all of us to work to bridge the knowledge gaps to better kidney care. The 2022 campaign will focus on efforts to increase education and awareness about kidney health and on reducing the stubbornly high CKD knowledge gap.
This knowledge gap hampers the fight for kidney health and increases the inherent morbidity and mortality associated with kidney disease. All worldwide should not only be aware of the vital role played by the kidneys but know their own kidney health measures. Such a commitment to advancing knowledge of our kidneys involves all of us in the global kidney community — physicians, scientists, nurses and other health-care providers, patients, administrators, health-policy experts, government officials, nephrology organizations, and foundations.
