ISN Sessions at APCN2020: Join Colleagues In-person or Online

The ISN and Asian Pacific Society of Nephrology (APSN) have sustained a successful collaboration over the last decade, working together to advance kidney care in the Asia-Pacific region.

ISN is pleased to share with members that the APSN’s 18th Asian Pacific Congress of Nephrology (APCN) will take place from 2-4 October 2020 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Because of ongoing uncertainties due to COVID-19, the local organizing committee will add a live online component to make this congress thefirst-everhybrid APCN.


The congress themeCombating CKD in the Asia Pacific: Local Strategies for a Global Problem, will embrace important topics on chronic kidney disease, acute kidney injury, glomerulonephritis, and advances in dialysis and transplantation.

To further enrich the program, abstract submissions forpapers related to COVID-19 have been accepted and experts from around the world in this emerging field have been invited to share their experiences.

Representing ISN participation, Germaine Wong will deliver ‘Clinical Care of COVID-19 Infection: Perspective of a Frontline Nephrologist’ in the Special Symposium: COVID-19 and Nephrology Practice on October 3. On October 4, ISN President-Elect Agnes Fogo will deliver the Chan Woon-Cheung Award Lecture, and ISN President Vivek Jha will present his talk, ‘Preventive Strategy for CKD based on Global Survey.’
