Kidney Health Week

Kidney Health Week is one of the most important dates in our calendar, being a national event during which we have an opportunity to create considerable awareness about kidney disease and its impact.

Held every year in the last week of May, a wide range of activities is conducted across Australia to promote the message of prevention, detection and support.

Communities around the nation turn red to support our cause and thousands of people help by displaying Kidney Health Week information. Free event packs containing posters, postcards and balloons are provided to help with activities.

Ideas for contributing to the success of Kidney Health Week include:

  • hosting an information display at your workplace or social organisation
  • visiting your local health centre to hand out information
  • organising a red morning or afternoon tea
  • dressing in red for a day at your workplace or school
  • hosting a Big Red BBQ or red-themed dinner party.

The media also broadcast vital information about the incidence of chronic kidney disease and the initiatives we have introduced to save and improve the lives of people affected by the condition. We have a number of speakers available to contribute to media requests.
