About ISN

Since its foundation in 1960, the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) has pursued the worldwide advancement of education, science and patient care in nephrology (the medical sub-specialty dealing with the Kidneys).

The Society represents a wide international network and provides an efficient platform for timely scientific exchange, debate and dissemination between healthcare professionals around the world. It is also dedicated to addressing the disparity between the developing and developed worlds in the research, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of kidney disease.

The ISN has over 9,000 professional members from more than 152 countries. In addition, ISN closely collaborates with 92 national and regional nephrology societies around the world, representing about 20,000 professionals. *ISN Membership is ever evolving/growing. Numbers may be different from printed documents

The ISN continues to develop and consolidate several programs, initiatives  and partnerships that will help to further deliver on its two overarching goals: reducing the incidence and impact of kidney disease worldwide, and making the ISN the leading international organization for all issues related to the science and practice of nephrology.

ISN also strives to advance nephrology worldwide through the help of its Membership, Publications, Meetings, ISN Global Outreach Programs, as well as concerted efforts such as World Kidney Day.
