Our Vision – IPNA members disseminate knowledge about kidney disease in children in the areas where care is needed most. “Optimal care for all children with kidney disease” is IPNA’s vision.

Our Mission is to lead the global efforts to successfully address the care for all children with Kidney disease through advocacy, education, and training.

Our Strategy has four pillars, illustrated below.

Update (October 2020)

In the past year, IPNA Council has improved our communications through the website, newsletters, and increased use of social media. We have increased our educational and teaching programs, converting to virtual formats, promoting guidelines, increasing interactions with local societies and providing more master classes.
