Sister center partners meet in Guatemala

The Washington University (WU) School of Medicine in St-Louis recently took part in the First Annual Update in Nephrology: Leading the Battle against Chronic Kidney Disease in Guatemala City.

This ISN Sister Renal Center partnership, including researchers, residents, fellows and staff from WU and the IGSS hospital system and Roosevelt Hospital in Guatemala City, has been working to study MesoAmerican Nephropathy.

Professor Robin Anthony Jeffrey Eady MBE, was a British dermatologist and the world's longest surviving kidney patient after receiving dialysis from the 1960s.

It was recently reported on Ghana web news that First Sky Group of Companies has donated two million Ghana Cedis to Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, so more patients with acute kidney disease can get free treatment across the country.

According to the recent Google Scholar metrics, Kidney International is ranked first among all nephrology journals.

Google Scholar Metrics provide an easy way for authors to quickly gauge the visibility and influence of recent articles in scholarly publications. Scholar Metrics summarize recent citations to many publications, to help authors as they consider where to publish their new research.

Adeera Levin interviewed by Cameroon TV news during the AFRAN 2017 congress in Yaounde (15-19 March 2017). She talks about the multiple programs of ISN in Africa, and about the long-standing collaboration between ISN and AFRAN, which is essential for the progress of kidney care in the Continent.

The AFRAN 2017 congress saw a sizable ISN representation, with, beyond our President, David Harris (President Elect), John Feehally (Programs Chair), Fred Finkelstein (Dialysis and CME Chair), Simon Davies (Dialysis Chair), Mohammed Ben Gharbi (Africa Regional Board Chair), Luca Segantini (ISN Executive Director) and many others.

Please watch the video from CrTV:

 

On February 7 and 8, 2017, ISN participated to the Summit of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences on Organ Trafficking and Transplant Tourism in Vatican City. ISN fully endorsed the Summit’s Statement, which calls on all religious, political and social leaders, national and international legislators to recognize that organ and human trafficking for organ removal are ‘true crimes against humanity.’

dialysisA dialysis patient referred me to this article from The Atlantic. Published in 2010 but still worth reading. The ISN is all about closing gaps in the provision of kidney care worldwide, but when we think of "gaps", we tend to think of emerging countries, places in Africa or the poorest parts of Asia and Latin America. However, as the article recounts, there are significant gaps in the provision of dialysis even in the United States. Please do read this excellent story, which includes words from ISN past president, dr. Giuseppe Remuzzi, among others.
