“IPNA TC in Dharan was a great success, participants liked the course design, topic, presentation and panel discussion. Similarly, the hands-on training was interesting to the participants and they were very happy to get involved in such training, first of its kind in Nepal. I look forward to working for IPNA in the future and to work together to serve the little kidneys in this part of the world.“
