World Kidney Day (WKD) organizers, ISN and IFKF, wish to thank all partners and collaborators who helped advance the WKD 2020 message highlighting the importance of preventive measures and the need for increased awareness in kidney disease prevention during this year’s event.
The 15th edition of WKD was marked worldwide on March 12 by stakeholders, regional and local authorities, the WHO, patients, and the general public, raising the profile of kidney diseases and generating solidarity among the nephrology community.
WKD reached 327 million people via social media: WKD content was liked, commented on, shared, and clicked 43 thousand times, and #worldkidneyday gained 154 million impressions.
The extent and variety of worldwide activities, which were adapted where necessary due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, are a testimony to the strength and engagement of the WKD community.
