Today is the 9th World Kidney Day, a yearly worldwide effort “to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys to our overall health and to reduce the frequency and impact of kidney disease and its associated health problems.”
As usual, AJKD has published the World Kidney Day editorial and consistent with this emphasis on public health, AJKD is seeking submissions for an ongoing series on public health and kidney disease. AJKD will accept for review Original Investigation, World Kidney Forum, Perspective, and Special Report manuscripts. Of particular interest are topics including:
• Public awareness
• Public health initiatives and/or outcomes
• Health policy related to kidney disease
• Burden of kidney diseases (acute and chronic)
• Modifiable risk factors (diet, exercise, etc)
• Adherence: behavioral, patient empowerment studies/interventions, and best practices
AJKD encourages content from around the world, but manuscripts focused on local conditions should have global or more general implications.
Submissions may be submitted via AJKD’s online manuscript handling site (www.editorialmanager.com/ajkd); please mention in the “comments” step of the submission process that you are submitting in response to the public health call for papers.
