Society Publications

We have partnered with International Society of Nephrology (ISN) Global Kidney Health Atlas Team to develop the Global Kidney Nutrition Care Atlas.
Assessing Global Kidney Nutrition Care.
CJASN January 2022, 17 (1) 38-52; DOI:
with an editorial accompanying this Society publication.
We hope this collaborative work will form an important advocacy tool to raise awareness of the importance of renal nutrition care, improve global renal nutrition care and to promote governmental prioritization and allocation of resources and manpower for this essential component in kidney care worldwide, especially in lower income countries.

We have teamed up with the International Federation of Kidney Foundation / World Kidney Alliance (WKA) on the World Kidney Recipes project to promote healthy kidney diet and smart eating for our kidney patients.
