ISN-TTS Sister Transplant Centers (STC)

ISN-TTS Sister Transplant Centers (STC)

The program is a joint partnership between ISN and The Transplantation Society (TTS) to help establish new kidney transplant centers and develop existing kidney transplant programs in emerging countries. Please note that the program is open to all ISN and TTS members.

This initiative fosters partnerships between experienced transplant centers in the developed world (Supporting Centers or SCs) and new and developing transplant centers (Emerging Centers or ECs) in low-resource regions, providing a framework and funding for up to six years of collaboration if adequate progress is made.

After six- years of improvement on the program, graduated centers are encouraged to support a third center within their region and therefore sustain the impact of their training and help other centers to develop.
