ISN and Latin-American Society of Nephrology and Hypertension (SLANH) extend partnershipISN admin
At a joint meeting held during the 2019 SLANH congress in Lima, Peru, between the ISN President and Executive Director, the SLANH Steering Committees, and the members of the Latin American Board of ISN (LARB-ISN), ISN and SLANH agreed to extend and formalize their existing partnership to include collaboration on all ISN programs and activities, demonstrating their mutual commitment to the advancement of nephrology in the Latin American region.
This partnership seeks to advance regional capacity building through the ISN-SLANH Fellowships, Sister Renal Centers (SRC), CME meetings, Educational Ambassadors program (EA), Clinical Research projects, and the Kidney Care Network.
The collaboration also aims to increase the availability of educational content in Spanish and Portuguese on the ISN Academy and to develop and support CME meetings in Spanish and Portuguese held in Latin America.
In particular, this agreement is intended to encourage the training of Latin American Fellows within the region and to build partnerships between emerging and supporting Sister Renal Centers from the region. In both cases, the long-term objective is to create Nephrological Training Centers of excellence in Latin America.
