Global Kidney Policy Forum

Global Kidney Policy Forum

Wednesday, February 23

Full details of the GKPF’22 agenda will be published here shortly.

Join us for the Professor Donal O’Donoghue Global Kidney Policy Forum: Building Healthier Sustainable Communities to Safeguard Kidney Health at the World Congress of Nephrology 2022.

The Global Kidney Policy Forum (GKPF) reviews the burden of kidney disease in the ISN South-East Asia region and shares strategies for prevention and improved disease management at both regional and global levels.

It connects high-level decision-makers and stakeholders – including health ministry officials and WHO representatives – as well as nurses, patients, and representatives from other international health NGOs in the international health community.

WCN’22 hosts the fourth edition of the GKPF. The first three were held at the World Congresses of Nephrology at Mexico City (2017), Melbourne (2019), and Montreal (2021) with the participation of stakeholders from Latin America, South-East Asia, and Oceania and Canadian ISN regions.

During the first GKPF, stakeholders developed a set of 12 Recommendations to guide future efforts to reduce the burden of kidney disease worldwide. Successive forums are committed to the continued adherence to and advancement of these recommendations.

The exclusive format of the event provides an opportunity to consider the international viewpoint on key kidney health challenges and opportunities affecting the ISN South East Asia Region.
