We are pleased to announce that the APSN has joined the Lancet Kidney Campaign, an online Campaign to raise awareness of acute and chronic kidney diseases and bring together the best available evidence to inform strategies to reduce the national, regional and global burden of the disease and its risk factors.
The Lancet Kidney Campaign was launched on March 10, 2016 to mark World Kidney Day (WKD). Initiatied by The Lancet and the International Society of Nephrology (ISN), this Campaign is joined now by the APSN and other leading global kidney organisations around the world to keep clinicians, policy-makers and collective societies in regions throughout the world informed with research, expert commentaries and analysis on acute kidney injury (AKI), chronic kidney disease (CKD), dialysis and transplantation from across the journal’s database.
The Campaign also provides regular updates on recent advances in nephrology, as well as expert commentaries and interviews on key health and policy issues relevant to kidney disease. The most recent updates include:
- The ISN Global Kidney Health Summit: setting a blueprint for tackling global CKD epidemic
- Kidney disease in Indigenous populations
- Obesity and overweight populations in Latin America
- Ramadan and chronic kidney disease patients
We invite you to visit the Lancet Kidney Campaign website and explore its in-depth and up-to-date resources.
