The ISN Global Kidney Policy Forum is a yearly high-level meeting organized by ISN at each World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) bringing together key decision-makers and stakeholders to address the burden of kidney disease in a specific country or region and share strategies for prevention and improved management of the disease at both the regional and global level.

The first Global Kidney Policy Forum took place in April 2017. Stakeholders invested in addressing the growing burden of kidney disease gathered to describe, discuss, and develop a set of 12 Recommendations to Global Kidney Health to guide future efforts to reduce the burden of kidney disease worldwide.

Successive Global Kidney Policy Forums are committed to the continued adherence to and advancement of the 12 Recommendations.

The 2021 Global Kidney Policy Forum will be the third in a series of ISN Policy Forum meetings taking place at regular intervals. For the first time, the Forum will be open to all World Congress of Nephrology delegates and the unique format provides an opportunity to bring an international viewpoint on key kidney health challenges and opportunities.

ISN calls on all participants and interested stakeholders to attend the Global Kidney Policy Forum to add their perspective on improving kidney health in their region and to renew their commitment to the 12 Recommendations to Global Kidney Health!
