Stopping kidney disease

Solidaridad started the National Postcode Lottery sponsored programme on sugarcane to stop Chronic Kidney Disease (CKDnT) amongst sugarcane workers in Central America in 2013. Solidaridad’s field test showed that improved work practices for cane cutters can stop kidney decline, while increasing labour productivity.

 

Together with partners, we’re improving upon the interventions, and increasing their scale. Simultaneously, Solidaridad has set out to promote industry awareness about the benefits of better working conditions.
