Message from IPNA President

Dear IPNA Members, Dear Friends,

Although many of us are still working overtime in trying to contain the COVID-19 pandemic in our hospitals and clinics, I am encouraged that our IPNA programs continue to take place as a result of  the efforts of a number of dedicated committee members, both  Councilors and  volunteers. This year, we will be revamping the IPNA webpage to make it more exciting and informative, there will be more IPNA webinars on-line as well as virtual teaching courses, and the IPNA Evidence-based Workshop should be extremely informative, with free registration for all members. World Kidney Day is also around the corner, and each year IPNA organizes a contest to encourage activities highlighting WKD  by providing USD 5,000 to a pediatric nephrology center(s) from a developing country who has developed an exceptional WKD program. I would also like to encourage all of you to get connected with our social media efforts at IPNA_PEDNEPH on Twitter to share your experiences with colleagues around the world!

Thank you for continuing your involvement with IPNA and its activities, and we certainly look forward to meeting face-to-face  in Calgary in September 2022 for the 19th IPNA Congress in Pediatric Nephrology.

With my best regards,

 

Prof. Hui Kim Yap

IPNA President

IPNA Council Meetings

IPNA council meetings are typically organized 6-12 months in advance. Locations of an associated regional society event or other event relevant to IPNA is, in most cases,  the main decision-making criteria when determining the location of the council meeting. However, there are other important factors to be considered, including the following:

  • Safety and stability of the destination
  • Cost of the IPNA meeting at the destination
  • Travel distance to the destination for IPNA councillors
  • Balance between geographical regions for council meeting location
