Dear EKHA Members,
We are pleased to share the European Kidney Health Alliance (EKHA) “Kidney Manifesto - An EU strategy to improve kidney care during the 2024-2029 mandate” for the 2024 European Union elections and awareness-raising infographic on kidneys, “Show your Kidneys Love”. Both documents are embargoed until tomorrow 11:00 CET.
Through our manifesto and infographic, we seek to raise greater awareness among EU policymakers of the burden of chronic kidney disease (CKD), which has gone underrecognised in EU health policies. Specifically, the manifesto calls for improving the primary and secondary prevention of kidney disease through the implementation of an EU code for CKD prevention, improving organ donation and transplantation in the EU through the implementation of a second EU Action Plan on Organ Donation and Transplantation, and fostering innovation in kidney therapies through greater support for promising public-private partnerships. At the same time, the “Show your Kidneys Love” infographic, featuring the invaluable contribution of the late Tina Turner, outlines our kidneys’ role, the impacts of CKD, key risk factors, and offers insights on ways to prevent CKD.
Please find the manifesto and infographic attached. In addition, please find attached several template posts on the manifesto for publication on social media, and a template e-mail, should you want to further amplify the release of these documents within your own network.
We remain available to provide additional information and to address any questions you might have.
