The Global Kidney Policy Forum: Focus On North America and The Caribbean will be the third in an ongoing series of ISN Policy Forums. The unique format will bring an international focus to the key kidney health challenges and opportunities affecting the North America and Caribbean region.

Given the health disparities identified during the global COVID-19 pandemic, this GKPF will highlight some of the challenges faced by specific populations in accessing kidney healthcare.

The Forum’s overarching objective is to enable policy makers, patients, clinicians and administrators/funders to better understand the opportunities to improve kidney health within their region(s), and propose concrete solutions that will help deliver such goals.
