This program was made possible thanks to a growing ISN-TTS Sister Renal Center partnership between the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, UK and the Al Shifa Hospital Gaza, Palestine. In January 2013, the collaboration led to the first kidney transplant operation. Since then 25 transplants have been performed including 7 children..

The ISN-TTS Sister Transplant Center Program is a joint partnership set up between ISN and The Transplantation Society (TTS) to create new kidney transplant centers and develop existing kidney transplant programs in emerging countries. Following the success of the ISN Sister Renal Center Program, this initiative encourages transplant centers to work together to increase opportunities for kidney transplant patients in developing countries.

The next deadline to submit your applications to this Program is on 1 October 2016.
