In 2010, ISN celebrated its 50th Anniversary, showcasing 50 years of achievements. Through the decades, ISN’s goal has evolved from a simple informative Society to an organization that is pursuing its objective of communicating renal-care knowledge and resources worldwide.

ISN has dedicated itself to bridge the gaps between developed and developing countries and has risen to the challenge of fighting kidney disease by bringing these two worlds together.

Taking on a humanitarian mission, it has set out to reduce the impact and frequency of kidney disease worldwide. Many of its activities developed through its Global Outreach (GO) programs (formerly known as COMGAN) have provided education and training for kidney specialists in emerging countries, raised awareness about early screening and treatment, connected kidney care professionals globally, and supported research into better patient healthcare.

To celebrate ISN’s 50th Anniversary and to showcase the many Global Outreach and humanitarian activities ISN is involved with every day around the world, ISN has commissioned a short film entitled "Turning Their World Around" which highlights some of the visionary leaders, volunteers and programs advancing nephrology around the world. You can watch the short (4 minutes) and full (13 minutes) version of the film on this page.
