Explore and Share the ISN Dialysis Framework to Advance Kidney Care in Low-Resource Settings

The “ISN Framework for Developing Dialysis Programs in Low-Resource Settings,” developed in collaboration with the WHO, is a resource-sensitive guide to help health systems develop solutions to care for kidney disease patients in low-resource settings.

Read more on this initiative in The Lancet.

There are significant global inequities in access to long-term dialysis. In LMIC countries, dialysis must often be financed by the patient, meaning that many who start the treatment can only continue for a short time. The framework presents a holistic approach to provide accessible, good-quality dialysis in these settings.

The ISN encourages all to download the framework and share it with health care workers, patients, and policymakers.
