World Kidney Day
NRAA proudly supports World Kidney Day's global awareness campaign aimed at raising awareness of the importance of kidneys. In 2019, World Kidney Day focuses on raising awareness of the high and increasing burden of kidney disease worldwide and of the need for strategies for kidney disease prevention and management. Join us in support of World Kidney Day!
Kidney Health for Everyone Everywhere
850 MILLION PEOPLE WORLDWIDE
are now estimated to have kidney disease from various causes. CKD causes at lest 2.4 million deaths per year and is now the 6th fastest growing cause of death. Acute kidney injury (AKI), and important driver of CKD, affects over 13 million people worldwide and 85% of these cases are found in low and middle-income countries. Around 1.7 million people are estimated to die annually because of AKI.
Despite the growing burden of kidney disease worldwide,
kidney health disparity and inequity
are still widespread. CKD and AKI often arise from the
in which people are born, grow, live, work and age including poverty, gender discrimination, lack of education, occupational hazards and pollution among others.
Early diagnosis, prevention and delay of progression are sustainable options to reduce costs and consequences of kidney disease for individuals and countries. Yet,
barriers to available, accessible, adequate and quality kidney care persist.
