Dear current IPNA member, dear future IPNA member, dear colleague,
The International Pediatric Nephrology Association has around 1,600 members from around 100 countries.
Today around 85% of children with end-stage renal disease die due to the unavailability of renal replacement therapy . This can be improved by education, prevention, research and advocacy.
Increasing membership is a major challenge in order to better take care of children with renal disease all over the world.
In order to reach this goal, IPNA and all regional societies (AfPNA, ALANEPE, ANZNPA, ASPN, AsPNA, ESPN, JSPN) propose a combined membership adapted to support local resources and provide several benefits: access to web community and social media, access to educational support, electronic version of the journal Pediatric Nephrology, electronic version of the Pediatric Nephrology textbook, free access to other journals and books from Springer, involvement in educational activities worldwide, and reduced fees for all IPNA congresses and workshops.
Our recommendation is: Join IPNA today to help improve the care of little kidneys. Everywhere.
Our best wishes,
Pierre Cochat, President
Kim Yap, President Elect
