The catchphrase chosen for World Kidney Day, which every year aims to raise people’s awareness of prevention, is: “Kidney Health for Everyone and Everywhere”. The catchphrase shows the worldwide efforts to ensure kidney health, which is essential for the proper functioning of the body.

As stated by experts that took part at this year’s press conference, which was held to announce the initiatives, by 2040 kidney diseases will become the fifth cause of death in the world.
Monuments located in Padua, Livorno, Turin, and Pisa will be illuminated to make people aware of this phenomenon, which the constantly growing nature is also due to the aging of the population.
Nefrocenter will make all its centers available for free screenings and free telephone and online consultancies with nephrologists in order to contribute once again with its consistent support to prevention.
