Since 2006, by considering one dimension of kidney disease, each year, the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the International Federation of Kidney Foundations (IFKF) have consistently and unanimously declared a World Kidney Day (WKD) around a specific kidney disease to increase the global awareness about kidney diseases. WKD, which is celebrated in more than 150 countries worldwide, is an international kidney health awareness campaign emphasizing the importance of the kidneys to reduce the global prevalence of kidney diseases and their related health problems by promoting patients and providing education. The present review aims to summarize the themes of previous WKD campaigns and the advocacy of the 2021 WKD campaign theme “Living well with kidney disease”. The 2021 WKD Steering Committee advocates for the empowerment of CKD patients, their family members, and care partners, along with both drug and non-drug therapeutic programs to achieve better health outcomes.
