Spread the word together with us: “Kidney Health For All”

Fresenius Medical Care Singapore will be celebrating World Kidney Day and supporting this important annual initiative with various activities in the month of March. Get ready and involved!

World Kidney Day started in 2006 and has not stopped growing ever since. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the initiative and Fresenius Medical Care continues to take part in this worldwide campaign to help raise awareness of the important role of the kidneys to the overall health, as well as the impact of chronic kidney disease. Globally 8-10% of the adult population have some form of kidney damage1

This year’s theme “Kidney Health for All” is a reminder that not all of us are equal with regard to the risks for developing Chronic Kidney Disease as well as access to treatment.
