Welcome to the AFRAN congress 2019 events page.
The African Association of Nephrology (AFRAN) and African Paediatric Nephrology Association (AFPNA) seek to bring together the Nephrology community in Africa to share knowledge and experiences, establish linkages and ultimately improve outcomes in the management of kidney diseases in Africa. Towards this end, biennial congresses are held to provide an avenue for updating delegates on the latest developments in nephrology.
The next AFRAN/AFPNA congress will be held in the coastal city of Mombasa, Kenya from 25th – 28th September, 2019. It will be hosted by the Kenya Renal Association (KRA), which will be concurrently holding its 16th annual scientific conference, and the Kenya Nephrology Nurses Association (KNNA) which will be holding its 8th conference.
The Theme of the Conference is: ‘Improving Kidney Care in Africa’. The proposed sub-themes include: Hemodialysis, Peritoneal Dialysis, Transplantation, Tropical diseases and the Kidney, CKD, AKI, HIV related kidney diseases, Pediatric Nephrology, Global Nephrology, Nephropathology, Glomerulonephritides, Interventional Nephrology.
We are honored to invite you all to join us either as delegates or sponsors. We hope to host hundreds of nephrologists and allied kidney care professionals in the lovely city of Mombasa. We are formulating a robust scientific program that will be sure to keep delegates engaged and updated. We also have exciting social activities planned for delegates.

We look forward to hosting you all. Karibu Mombasa!
