HMC’s Nephrology Department is joining this year’s international activities to mark World Kidney Day on 11 March 2021. The global theme for 2021 is “Living Well with Kidney Disease”. World Kidney Day aims to create awareness. Awareness about preventive behaviors, awareness about risk factors, and awareness about how to live with a kidney disease. We do this because we want kidney health for all. Kidney disorders affect a large number of people around the world and also in Qatar. Kidney disease can affect people of any age, gender and race. Importantly, the early stages of kidney disease often display no symptoms, meaning it can be very difficult to correctly diagnose in the early stages.

For this reason it is essential that people live healthy lifestyles in order to reduce their risk of developing kidney disease.

As the main provider of specialized healthcare services in Qatar, HMC, Nephrology Division has an important role to play in looking after the health of Qatar’s population. This year’s World Kidney Day activities demonstrate HMC, Nephrology Division commitment to promoting health in the community.
