First ISN-TTS Sister Transplant Centers announced
The ISN and The Transplantation Society are delighted to announce the results of the call for applications of the new ISN-TTS Sister Renal Center Program.
Three established renal centers will be working with three renal centers in the emerging economies of the world to develop, support and enhance kidney transplantation in those centers.
We congratulate the first centers to join this program:
- FUNDANIER/Hospital Roosevelt (Guatemala) and UCLA Division of Nephrology (US)
- Al Shifa Hospital (Palestine) and Royal Liverpool University Hospital (UK)
- University Department of Nephrology Macedonia and University Department of Nephrology (Belgium)
After the success of the ISN Global Outreach (GO) Sister Renal Center Program, this initiative is a collaboration between ISN and TTS to build on that strategy and encourage transplant centers to work together to increase opportunities for kidney transplant patients in developing countries.
An experienced transplant center in the developed world lends its support to an emerging transplant center to facilitate vital multidisciplinary training and encourage both centers to exchange their knowledge and expertise.
This program represents another way in which ISN and TTS have partnered to achieve more than each society can achieve alone. The ISN TTS transplant sister centre program will grow as we add new centres in the coming years. The applications for the 2014 round are due by September 15, 2013. Click HERE for details.
