Challenges of Practice in Resource Limited Environment. Focus on Africa

We are pleased to invite you to the 10th satellite organized by the ISN Advisory Committee for Kidney Health in Disadvantaged Populations (CKHDP). Acclaimed as an attractive and well attended Post Congress satellite meeting of the WCN, the meeting will focus on renal problems linked to non-communicable diseases faced by racial and ethnic minorities, indigenous and migrant populations with a focus on Africa. Experts in the field of epidemiology, preventive and clinical nephrology will deliver up-to-date information in relevant areas. The satellite meeting is a platform to discuss and debate the latest advances in these areas of nephrology, and is intended for anyone involved in the prevention and treatment of renal disease in these populations.

We also invite you to present any relevant abstract in the field, which may be the same that has been submitted to the World Congress of Nephrology. It will add to the success of the satellite conference, and it will increase your audience. The selected abstracts will be presented in the poster display. Several abstracts will be selected for an oral presentation.

Several scholarships covering registration and 2 nights’ accommodation will be made available to young researchers from emerging nations in order to facilitate their participation.

The conference will be held at the Kirstenbosch Old Mutual Conference Center, in the stunning setting of the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, on the slopes of Table Mountain. The garden is the first botanic garden in the world to be included within a natural World Heritage Site.

We are looking forward to your participation!
