ISN Programs can now support medical communities in Iran

Following a license issued by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the ISN Programs can now be extended to support training activities in nephrology for doctors in Iran.

On September 10, 2013, OFAC issued Iran with a general license E (GL E) under the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations (ITSR), with respect to certain services in support of non-governmental organization activities in Iran. This license authorizes non-governmental organizations to export or re-export services to or related to Iran in support of certain not-for-profit activities that are designed to directly benefit the Iranian people, including humanitarian projects to meet basic human needs in the country.

According to the license, activities related to The Clinical Research and Prevention program, Continuous Medical Education program, Educational Ambassadors program, the Fellowship Program, and Sister Renal centers can now take place in Iran.

Additionally, ISN can also distribute newsletters, medical journals, and other informational materials within Iran and to Iranian nationals, as well as provide online access to such informational materials to persons in IRAN to receive the request of support to this event.

ISN Programs offer a broad range of educational and training activities to developing nephrology community. Many of these take place onsite and respond to local needs. CLICK HERE for further information about these programs.
