Dear IPNA members,
Dear Friends,

Our world is moving every day so that IPNA issues may look ridiculous compared to terrorism, disasters, crime, poverty and extinction of human respect.
However we still have an ongoing mission: keeping children with renal diseases in the best health conditions, and fight for it! But I know many of you also fight for many other causes.
The good news is that IPNA membership is growing well and we have now exceeded 1,500 members, thanks to information and combined membership with regional societies! I am convinced our community will go on involving more and more people from more and more nations!
Regarding the IPNA congress in Iguaçu, we have to face many unforeseen changes but Arvind Bagga has managed to prepare an outstanding scientific program, so that I hope meeting most of you there!

Have a safe and peaceful summertime!
Warm regards,
