The ISN Clinical Research Committee supports research and education programs in low-to-middle income countries, involving local nephrologists, health workers and authorities. The Clinical Research Program helps implement research projects to detect and manage non-communicable chronic diseases such as CKD, hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

In 2005 the Committee developed The Detection and Management of Chronic Kidney Disease, Hypertension, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease in Developing Countries (KHDC) document. This KHDC guideline document provides a template format for the set-up of early detection and intervention programs in emerging countries that can be implemented according to the particular needs, organization facilities, and economic imperatives of the given country.

The Committee is involved with providing guidance for the set-up of programs across the globe; some countries where screening and prevention programs are currently being conducted in accordance to the KHDC are Mozambique, Mexico, Morocco, Indonesia, Cuba, Bolivia, Nepal, Moldova, Egypt, India, Nigeria, China, Mongolia.

Recent efforts have also been focused on data collection and surveillance initiatives in order to help better demonstrate the prevalence of chronic kidney disease and its effective treatment.
