World Kidney Day 2021

Kidney health for everyone everywhere - Living Well with Kidney Disease 

World Kidney day is an opportunity to recognise kidney disease which affects people in all countries.  It has an internation theme set by the World Kidney day steering committee.

In New Zealand we recognise world kidney day by organising free kidney health checks throughout New Zealand which will help improve early diagnosis  Early diagnosis gives people time to manage the disease to prevent it worsening.   This prevents them from needing either a live transforming transplant or dialysis treatment.  

Keep checking with this page to see what events we have planned for your area.   If you would like to volunteer for a local event please email   

Working together we can reduce the harm, allowing people to live well with kidney disease!
