World kidney day 2015
Celebrated on the second Thursday in March, the mission of World Kidney Day is to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys to our overall health and to reduce the frequency and impact of kidney disease and its associated health problems worldwide.
Theme for 2015 is Kidney Health for All
The logo for World Kidney Day is composed of two kidneys and three bright colour bars. These colours represent the blood (red), excess water (blue) and urine (yellow) that our kidneys filter, clean and eliminate.
International Federation of Kidney Foundations (IFKF) would like to have as many people as possible around the world drinking a glass of water to think about their kidneys on this very special day.
Why a glass of water? Because kidneys don’t function without water. Drinking water can help keep kidneys healthy, although it will not cure kidney disease. The glass of water is a conversation starter to talk about how to prevent kidney disease. We rely on you to spread the word amongst the whole kidney community, your friends, colleagues and relatives about its twitter initiative calling us to “Start the day with a glass of water”.
