10th Conference on Kidney Disease in Disadvantaged Populations
A WCN 2015 Satellite Symposium
March 17-18, 2015
Cape Town, South Africa


The meeting will focus on renal problems linked to non-communicable diseases faced by racial and ethnic minorities, indigenous and migrant populations with a focus on Africa. Experts in the field of epidemiology, preventive and clinical nephrology will deliver up-to-date information in relevant areas. The satellite meeting is a platform to discuss and debate the latest advances in these areas of nephrology, and is intended for anyone involved in the prevention and treatment of renal disease in these populations.

The satellite organizers are now calling for abstract submissions. Abstracts (relevant to the topic of KD in disadvantaged populations) can be submitted online until November 20, 2014. These may be the same abstracts as submitted to the World Congress of Nephrology 2015.

Abstract submission is open until November 20: www.satellite2015.ckhdp.org/abstracts.php

Online registration and housing are also open. Please visit the satellite website for all details: www.satellite2015.ckhdp.org

We look forward to your participation!
