WCN 2015: sustainability and diversity in nephrology Featured

WCN2015logoHomeISN, the South African Renal Society, the African Association of Nephrology and the Renal Care Society of South Africa are gearing up for next year’s World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) in South Africa. Check out the latest program online.

As previous editions of WCN have shown, sustainability and diversity are increasingly relevant to kidney doctors worldwide. These topics are the themes of WCN 2015, taking place in Cape Town from March 15 to 17, 2015. “The program will reflect our efforts to advance renal care all around the world,” says ISN President and WCN 2015 Chair Giuseppe Remuzzi.

WCN 2015 Scientific Program Committee Chair Pierre Ronco explains the challenge of featuring excellence in medical science while meeting the unmet needs of emerging countries particularly in Africa. He says: “We are focusing on burning topics for these countries such as infectious risk factors, hypertension, diabetes, pregnancy, perinatal and pediatric issues as well as acute kidney injury with a translational approach from bench to bedside.”

There are also slots for short oral presentations to increase interaction with the audience, French and English CNEs, a renal pathology pre-course addressing renal pathology challenges and solutions in Africa and beyond, and a series of hands-on sessions at the Red Cross Hospital in Cape Town.
