The International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the Foundation for Kidney Federations (NKF) have been encouraging all Nephrology Societies and Renal Disease Associations to celebrate “World Day Of the Kidney “, with slogans differentiated each year, to give greater emphasis to the causes of Chronic Kidney Disease and raise awareness of the general population and also the professionals in the management of a pathology that can affect about 10% of the population.
On the occasion of the celebration of “World Kidney Day” on March 9, under the motto “Kidney disease and obesity: Healthy lifestyle for healthy kidneys”, the Spanish Society of Nephrology in collaboration with ALCER and SEDEN Carry out an awareness campaign for politicians and the general population. To this end, a photocall has been requested on the same day March 9, taking advantage of the fact that there is a plenary session in the Congress of Deputies, where politicians will be invited to photograph themselves by biting an apple in a symbolic way. It has also been requested to hold a press conference, also in the Congress, with the participation of the media assistants and representatives of the S.E.N., ALCER and SEDEN.
In addition, a series of actions will be carried out at national level (cooking workshops and video recording with relevant cooks conveying the message of healthy lifestyle, with the collaboration of ALCER) as well as the production of informative material, in Form of posters with the official logo and slogan proposed by the ISN and IFKF that will be distributed in all nephrology services and SEN partners.
