ISN contributes to WHO stakeholder consultation on tackling NCDs

In September 2016, ISN was invited to participate to a World Health Organisation (WHO) stakeholder consultation on the revision of Appendix 3 of the WHO NCD Global Action Plan 2013-2020.

In the consultation response, ISN stressed the importance of kidney disease as a ’neglected’ disease, which raises important public health concerns worldwide and should be put high on the agenda.

ISN has also brought the attention of the international healthcare community to the underestimated link between diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and kidney disease by recommending early detection of kidney disease in diabetes and CVD patients in order to improve outcomes.

The WHO is currently reviewing the responses received, including ISN’s and it is expected to publish the revised Appendix by October 2016.
