ISN has established official society affiliations with 92 national and regional societies which are properly constituted and adequately represent those concerned with nephrology in their locality. It is increasingly important for the ISN to bring together the global nephrology community through these affiliations  to successfully lobby health authorities and create awareness on a global scale yet appropriate to regional necessities and situations.

ISN reaches more than 20,000 nephrology-related professionals through its partnerships with its affiliated societies, making it the leading international organization for the prevention and treatment of kidney disease.
