Donate to IPNA Today

Please help bring our Vision to fruition: Optimal Care for All Children with Kidney Disease. Since 1974, we have worked tirelessly to disseminate training and knowledge to doctors worldwide to treat children with kidney disease. IPNA is doing exceptional work, yet the need for IPNA and its programs is still enormous. Kidney issues dramatically impact global health, yet sadly, kidney disease does not receive the publicity that cancer and heart disease generate. As a result, IPNA must wor harder to raise awareness about kidney disease in children and IPNA’s mission.
