To arrest the rising number of kidney failure patients being recorded in the country, the National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia (NKF) took the message of healthy living directly to the people.

The NKF also strengthened its links with the authorities and other non-governmental organisations to disseminate information on kidney diseases and the need to actively promote organ donations.

In formulating its strategies, the NKF launched its Public Education Unit in January 2001, to carry out public exhibitions, health talks, seminars and conferences that serve to raise awareness of kidney diseases and their prevention and management.

Since 2007, the unit became a department and started to expand its public education outreach programs. In 2008, the Department launched the NKF LifeCheck Mobile Health Screening Program and this has become the most high profile and effective education channel.

In June 2011, the Department opened the NKF-Berjaya Resource Centre to move forward to achieve NKF's vision as a one-stop national resource centre for the prevention and treatment of kidney diseases.

Slowly but surely, the Department is making strides and informing the public of the need to guard against diabetes, high blood pressure and kidney diseases through its public education outreach programs and mass media such as radio and print media.
