We received a growing number of applications for IPNA-sponsored WKD initiative.

All projects were excellent, so selecting one was very challenging. The winner of the WKD 2019 IPNA initiative is Dr. Alfonso Huante from Mexico.

Aim of the winning project: To increase the awareness of kidney disease and help two main objectives: 1) To use strategies for early detection of kidney disease among general physicians and/or pediatricians and also to bring knowledge to people to empower them together with improving kidney disease networking and 2) to increase interest in pediatric residents and medical students to get them involved in pediatric nephrology as a medical career in clinical and research fields.
