Global Kidney Care Podcast: Advocacy Edition Part 1 – A Beginners’ Guide to Kidney HealthISN admin
It’s shocking that although between 8 and 10% of the adult population live with some form of kidney damage, and millions die prematurely each year from complications related to kidney disease, “kidneys do not appear to be considered by the public as vital organs that need to be considered and kept healthy.”
To address this gap, the ISN has launched a podcast: A Beginners’ Guide to Kidney Health.
Featuring ISN Executive Committee Member Professor Ifeoma Ulasi from Nigeria and the late Professor Donal O’Donoghue, United Kingdom, Chair of the Advocacy Working Group at the time of recording, the podcast details the vital role that kidneys play in keeping us healthy, the best ways to maintain optimum kidney health, and the most common symptoms of kidney disease.
With the global burden of kidney disease increasing, it provides recommendations on how policymakers across the world can best prevent and manage this growing challenge.
