Current scenario of CKD in India

  • There are 60 million people with diabetes in India.
  • At least 30% of diabetics will develop chronic kidney disease because of diabetes.
  • 40 % of such patients would have developed kidney failure (Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 5 or CKD-5) require dialysis and/or kidney transplantation as a life sustaining treatment.
  • 2,00,000 new patients need dialysis treatment every year in India.
  • Statistics suggest that there should be almost 20,00,000people on dialysis in India as of today.
  • The majority of chronic kidney failure patients are diagnosed in the last stage. Though proper statistics are not available, it is accepted that almost 50% first see a nephrologist (kidney specialist) only in the last stage.
  • Kidney failure can affect people of any age group. While in the west, the majority of patients are elderly, in India kidney failure patients are much younger and affects predominantly the working population.

Early detection and proper treatment can prevent or slow the progress of the disease.

The Dillons Kidney Foundation (DKF) is looking to develop relationships with corporations and brands that are willing to work with us to promote early detection of kidney disease, improve the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by kidney disease, and help in cadaveric organ transplant programe for Indians that are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant.

Corporate sponsorship provides the opportunity for your brand to:

  • Connect with people who have chronic kidney disease and those who are at risk for the disease (people with diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of those conditions and disease), their families and the communities they live in.
  • Make a positive impact in their lives.
  • Raise funds to advance research for prevention and treatment of kidney disease.
  • Participate in outreach and education programs around the country.
  • Help close the gap that exists between the need for organs for transplantation and organ availability.
  • Support advocacy efforts.

Ways to Get Involved

We invite corporate India to join our efforts in developing and implementing world class educational initiatives, programs and events. Corporate sponsorship offers a variety of ways for companies and their employees to get involved:

Cause Marketing Partnership: From licensed products to campaigns that drive sales and brand awareness, the DKF looks forward to developing a customized and creative cause solution with your brand.

Event Sponsorship: Support the DKF through a range of memorable events throughout the year and around the country.

Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP) – DKF’s celebrated free kidney health screening program is designed to raise awareness about kidney disease among high risk individuals, so that kidney disease and its complications can be prevented or delayed.

Patient and Professional Educational Programs: Comprehensive education for patients and healthcare professionals to prevent, identify, and treat Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), manage and prevent CKD complications, and improve patient outcomes. All programs and activities are based on scientific evidence.

Clinical Meeting: Reach over 500 health care providers who attend DKF’s educational conference to learn new developments related to all aspects of nephrology and patient’s care.

Media Partnership: Help encourage everyone to “Love Your Kidneys” by providing pro-bono media placement for the Dillons Kidney Foundation’s new multimedia campaign. Our “Love Your Kidneys” public education campaign is a direct call-to-action to take care of your kidneys through early intervention.

Workplace Giving: Consider a workplace giving campaign and a matching gift program as part of your corporate philanthropy to encourage employees to make charitable contributions. Workplace giving programs increase employee satisfaction and engagement by providing an easy and efficient way to donate to their favorite charities through payroll deductions. Establishing a matching gift program further demonstrates your company's willingness to invest in the causes that matter to your employees. The DKF can also support your efforts by providing other educational services and programs to enhance your corporate culture and the health of your employees.
