Are You Involved in CKDu Research? Explore Ongoing Studies and Share Your Data on the ISN Observatory of CKDu 

The ISN Observatory of CKDu is a catalog where researchers can submit their findings or view other studies. This system facilitates global collaboration and data exchange, enabling researchers to know what studies are ongoing at any given time.

The initiative was developed by the ISN i3C (International Consortium CKDu Collaborators) working group as part of ISN’s 2018-2020 Collaboration Plan with the World Health Organization (WHO).

It aims to help raise awareness of the urgent issue of chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology/uncertain cause (CKDu) – a type of kidney disease that mainly affects marginalized agricultural communities.

Are you involved in human CKDu studies? Let the global nephrology community know: Submit your research for inclusion on the ISN Observatory of CKDu.
