REPORT OF THE WORLD KIDNEY DAY CELEBRATION IN PORT HARCOURT, NIGERIA. 2016


The World Kidney Day (WKD) is an annual event that draws attention to the rising burden of kidney diseases. It is celebrated globally every second Thursday of March and has been on for the past 10 years. This year’s team of prevention of kidney diseases in children is very apt because most of the causes of adult kidney diseases can be traced to events in childhood which were either not recognized or were poorly treated. As part of our own contribution to the creation of awareness of kidney diseases in children, we undertook a number of programs aimed at public enlightenment targeting students in high school and tertiary institution.
