THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION!
This year World Kidney Day (WKD) was celebrated on March 9. In our 12th campaign, we highlighted the harmful consequences of obesity and its association with kidney disease, an important yet rarely acknowledged link.
Together with the World Obesity Federation, we wrote a joint position aimed at bringing attention to the important role that obesity plays in the development and progression of kidney disease and providing pertinent strategies for policy-makers to tackle the root causes of kidney disease and obesity.
We would like to thank our partner and all the organizations and individuals that have helped us disseminate this message.
