Represented Countries:

Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka.

Affiliated Societies:

ISN has established official society affiliations 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.
