The ISN World Congress of Nephrology symbolized the dedication and passion of our community. I’m delighted to start my tenure as ISN President and want to congratulate David Harris for his committed efforts over two truly inspiring years. I’m eager to keep up the momentum of his many achievements.

A new Executive Committee and Council means we can continue to work towards the ISN’s mission, in particular, towards the goal of universal healthcare for patients with kidney disease, in line with the United Nations sustainable development goals. 

Also, in line with the emerging trends in the way medicine will be practiced in the next decade, the ISN is committed to contributing to the global knowledge economy. By increasing research capacity worldwide, we can help the global nephrology community contribute to the knowledge base by carrying out high-quality studies that seek to answer the important clinical question and add to the evidence base that drives quality affordable and sustainable healthcare delivery. 

By working together, we can advance nephrology worldwide.
