Increasing awareness regarding CKD and self-care during COVID-19 pandemic has become the most important aspect for the nephrologists. Hence it is appropriate that the theme of the forthcoming World Kidney Day on 11 March 2021 should be “Strive for kidney health for everyone during COVID-19”
Keywords: Chronic kidney disease, COVID-19, World Kidney Day, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (S, Collapsing glomerulopathy, End-stage renal disease, Hemodialysis, Renal failure

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Proteinuria, hematuria, and acute kidney injury are some of the clinical manifestations of renal failure in COVID-19 patients. Additionally, collapsing glomerulopathy with de novo nephrotic syndrome with acute renal impairment in COVID-19 patients has been described and recently been linked with APOL1 (apolipoprotein L1) in African American patients.
