The ISN will deliver two important statements concerning the COVID-19 pandemic status in these regions, describing how it has impacted those living with kidney diseases.

The ISN will reiterate the importance of recognizing the significant effect COVID-19 has on patients with acute or permanent kidney failure, many of whom face interrupted access to life-saving treatments such as dialysis and kidney transplantation.
