Nepal Society of Nephrology (NSN) was established on 25thJuly 1997 with a handful of Nephrologists & Internists interested in the field of Nephrology.The aims and objectives of NSN were to produce qualified Nephrologists inside the country, creation of awareness about kidney diseases among the population and establishment of renal replacement therapy the country.At present we have 33 Nephrologists, Hemodialysis centers and 3 transplantation centers.Our team is backed up by trained dialysis nurses and technicians to look after the hemodialysis patients across the country.
Our mission is to encourage regular CMEs, conferences and research activities. We always encourage our colleagues to present a paper and participate in national as well as international conferences. We believe working together makes the society different.
Despite all above mentioned achievements,we are still behind in the field of renal research. Till now, NSN was busy managing the basic needs in the field of Nephrology.Its high time that this forum should encourage its' members in the field of research work and registry system.
