The Asia Pacific Congress of Nephrology (APCN 2021) took place virtually from August 19-23, 2021, under the theme ‘Improving Kidney Health for All.’
The event provided a fitting platform to present Norella Kong, from Malaysia, with the ISN 2021 Pioneer Award for the OSEA region.
ISN President Agnes Fogo delivered the talk ‘New classification for Lupus Nephritis – time for a change?’ and past-President Vivek Jha presented ‘COVID-19 from ground zero, the present and the future.’
In addition, the ISN held a joint session alongside the Asia Pacific Society of Nephrology (APSN), ‘Novel Interventions and Treatment in CKD,’ with talks from ISN President-elect and APSN President Masaomi Nangaku on HIF-PHD inhibitors in kidney disease; Abdul Halim Gafor on SGLT2 inhibitors in kidney disease; and Sydney Tang on direct renin inhibitors in kidney disease.
The APSN will co-host WCN’22 alongside the Malaysian Society of Nephrology.
