World Kidney Day 2021
Most events in our programme of activities for World Kidney Day 2021 has unfortunately been cancelled due to the national lockdown imposed from the 10th March 2021 following the resurgence of Covid-19 in our country. We will organise a new series of events, Renal Month, later in the year when the health situation permits. In the meantime, you can check the radio and TV programmes done during March 2021 here.
Welcome. The Renal Association (of Mauritius) is a group of health professionals working together to improve the care of patients with kidney disease by promoting the highest standard of medical practice. Our focus is Mauritius but we form part of the global nephrology community through our affiliation of the International Society of Nephrology. We welcome all interested team members working and training in clinical care of kidney patients and related fields as well as doing research in kidney disease.
