ISN and SLANH stand united on Venezuela’s kidney health crisis

Responding to the crisis facing Venezuelan patients with kidney disease, ISN and the Latin American Society of Nephrology and Hypertension (SLANH) have set out to tackle kidney disease and advance kidney health by combining their expertise and knowledge.

In solidarity with the patient community and the Venezuelan Society of Nephrology, we are urging the Venezuelan government to recognize kidney disease and ensure that all kidney health programs providing dialysis and transplantation are restored and adequately resourced.

Supplies, equipment, medication and surgery is limited for about 15,000 Venezuelan patients on dialysis and 5,000 with a kidney transplant.
