The ISN World Congress of Nephrology continues to promote the themes of sustainability and diversity which are increasingly relevant to all countries across the developed and developing world. The commitment of the International Society of Nephrology to the global advancement of nephrology is recognized in the development of the scientific program of WCN 2013. Each theme has a co-chair specifically tasked with ensuring the content of the program includes topics addressing practical, social and economic challenges across diverse nations.
ISN Forefronts Symposia focus on emerging and ground-breaking research gathering nephrologists and active investigators from surrounding medical areas.

In 2010, ISN celebrated its 50th Anniversary, showcasing 50 years of achievements. Through the decades, ISN’s goal has evolved from a simple informative Society to an organization that sets out to communicate renal-care knowledge and resources worldwide.
In recent years the nephrology community has been joined by other medical colleagues in recognizing the need for communicating to the public about Acute Kidney Injury in a similar way that heart-attack or stroke campaigns have done. By focusing on AKI, the ISN and the IFKF together as the World Kidney Day Steering Committee hope to raise awareness of AKI and stimulate discussion, education and policy development leading to improved prevention and treatment of this major kidney disease across the globe.
