Kidneys Matter

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.
