World Kidney Day marked by call to action

European healthcare specialists and policy makers have announced that more needs to be done to help in the early diagnosis and treatment of chronic kidney disease.

European healthcare specialists and policy makers have announced that more needs to be done to help in the early diagnosis and treatment of chronic kidney disease (CKD).

A panel of medical experts, politicians, and patient organisations such as the European Kidney Health Alliance (EKHA) met to discuss the issue on March 4, marking World Kidney Day.

They highlighted the need for more policies to be put into action to help alleviate patients, society, and physicians of the burden of kidney disease.

MEP Frieda Brepoels, present at the meeting, said: "I strongly believe that the European Union can play a leading role in this regard."

"Efforts can be pulled together at European level by putting the prevention of kidney disease high on the European agenda."
