Partnering with ASPN, IPNA and HVO

In partnership with the American Society for Pediatric Nephrology (ASPN) and the International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA), Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO) is developing an exciting new initiative to support pediatric nephrology education and training in low-resource settings.


This partnership has three goals

To support the mission of the the ASPN Committee on Global Health to participate in pediatric nephrology education, clinical care, mentorship, and research in low resource settings

To enhance the visibility of pediatric nephrologists as global health workers and volunteers

To meet HVO’s nephrology-specific educational and clinical needs at existing clinical sites through didactic and bedside teaching, clinical care, mentorship, quality improvement, and professional development
