It has close links with all regional national societies of nephrology, and with the International Society of Nephrology (ISN).The APSN aims to cater specifically for the needs of the Nephrology community throughout the region, especially fostering the development of high quality nephrology in the less well developed countries of the region.
A Message from the President December 2014
Dear Members of APSN,
2014 has been a year of great achievements for our society with a very successful APCN and then CME meeting in Japan; the growing success of our journal Nephrology; the successful partnership with the global outreach programs of the International Society of Nephrology.
December has brought great sadness with the sudden passing of HaiYan Wang. A tribute to HaiYan can be found on the website, and APSN will find other ways to honour her many contributions.
2015 promises to be a very active year for our society, with 3 CME programs already organised (in Brunei, Japan and Thailand); other CME activities linked to international meetings; continuing support of regional outreach programs (Fellowships, Sister Renal Centres, Educational Ambassador, Clinical Research); continued growth of Nephrology; expansion of this website to include CME resources and contributions from the various national societies; preparations for the 2016 APCN in Perth.
I hope that the holiday period brings you rest and happiness and that 2015 is productive and satisfying for all of us.
President, APSN 2013-2016
