As highlighted in ISN's mission, ISN strives to BRIDGE THE GAPS of available care through advocacy and collaborations with our global partners.

Advocacy is thus one of the strategic priorities of the International Society of Nephrology. 

ISN is committed to Advocacy in order to facilitate the implementation of sustainable, equitable, ethical care for people with kidney disease in all regions and countries of the world.

ISN’s Advocacy objectives are threefold:

  • Ensure that kidney health is represented by a truly international voice on health-related global, regional and national policy developments
  • Provide input to health policy discussions relevant to improving kidney health e.g. surveillance and prevention, organ donation, transplantation and trafficking, renal replacement therapy access and others
  • Integrate kidney disease into the ongoing global debate and drive towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by leveraging kidney disease as a model for monitoring progress and achieving UHC.
