Dear IPNA Members,

We are pleased to present you with our first newsletter of 2018 which will provide some highlights on the most recent projects supported by IPNA. You will find two excellent reports of Fellowship trainings as well as a detailled report on a Teaching Course held in Bucharest recently. "To disseminate knowledge about kidney disease in children in the areas where care is needed most” remains our main preoccupation and our “raison d’être”. IPNA continues to fund local initiatives like the World Kidney Day (see 2018 winning project below) while no less than nine applications to the Pilote Sister Center program have been received.

Let’s continue the good work together and Happy World Kidney Day to all!

World Kidney Day 2018

HAPPY WORLD KIDNEY DAY: AND THE WINNER IS...

It is IPNA's mission to promote education and screening in children with kidney diseases all over the word. Kidney day is a wonderful opportunity to achieve this goal.
Each year, in that occasion, IPNA organises a contest to encourage local initiatives by providing USD 5,000 to one pediatric nephrology center from an emerging country.
Following evaluation of each project, the 2018 IPNA WKD Committee is pleased to inform you that the winning project of this content is Celebrations: World Kidney Day 2018 in AFMC and KEM hospital in conjunction with IPNA, proposed by Dr Suprita Kaira, from India.

MY IPNA FELLOWSHIP TRAINING...

IPNA has an established Fellowship program which helps disseminate knowledge of pediatric nephrology to different regions around the world. At the conclusion of the program, the trainees are required to submit a report reviewing their training experience. Here are two fellowship reports which testify of the impact that this program represents for pediatricians who work far from a pediatric nephrology training center.
