Message from IPNA President

Dear IPNA Members, Dear Friends,

2020 will be an exciting year for IPNA. The marked increase in membership to a record high of 1660 that we experienced in 2019 augurs well for the future of our community and the children and adolescents with kidney disease whom we serve. We will be rolling out a host of new programs for our members to participate in. This includes a menu of lectures from distinguished faculty in our monthly webinars, opportunities to participate in the different IPNA committees including professional education, patient education, IPNA-endorsed guidelines, registry, teaching courses and many more!

We will be encouraging more regional participation in the different IPNA programs, and will also expand our links with other Societies such as the International Society of Nephrology so that we can reach out to previously unreached low resource areas to try to improve care for children with kidney disease worldwide.

With my best regards,

 

Prof. Hui Kim Yap

IPNA President

Constitution

 

IPNA Council Meetings

IPNA council meetings are typically organized 6-12 months in advance. Locations of an associated regional society event or other event relevant to IPNA is, in most cases,  the main decision-making criteria when determining the location of the council meeting. However, there are other important factors to be considered, including the following:

  • Safety and stability of the destination
  • Cost of the IPNA meeting at the destination
  • Travel distance to the destination for IPNA councillors
  • Balance between geographical regions for council meeting location
