ISN President and Patient Ambassadors Feature in Film and Article on Chronic Kidney Disease

On September 28, the NCD Alliance launched “Facing Forward,” a series of films and articles produced by BBC StoryWorks Commercial Productions. The series is designed to raise awareness of noncommunicable diseases by hearing directly from patients around the world.

We are pleased to share that ISN President Agnes Fogo features in the film on CKD in the series. In addition, the stories of ISN patient ambassadors Abigail Ashley (Ghana), Fabrice Huré (France), Miracle Okon Ekpo (Nigeria), and Vicki Grey (Australia) feature in an article produced for AstraZeneca by BBC StoryWorks highlighting the global experience of CKD.

Watch the film on CKD here and read the ISN patient ambassador stories in this article.

Using ISN social media posts, please share these patient stories and the documentary film to help increase understanding of CKD and its impact.
