It would be a historic meeting which will serve as a springboard to advancement of nephrology in both scientific and clinical aspects, thus "Fostering kidney health across the world".

You can participate in very active discussions and cutting edge lectures by the world's top scientists and nephrologists in all fields of nephrology including clinical, research and future plans in Nephrology. World Congress on Nephrology aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Nephrology, kidney diseases and dialysis.


Who We Are:

The Frontiers Meetings is an expert-driven non-profit international conference organizer, initiated to provide an international forum for the appearance and discussions of cutting edge research in the fields of Health, medical and clinical Science.


Program at a Glance






Facts and Figures

  • According to WKF Around 10% of the population worldwide is affected by chronic kidney disease, and millions die each year because they do not have access to affordable treatment for CKD.
  • Over two million people worldwide currently receive treatment with dialysis or a kidney transplant to stay alive, yet this number may only represent 10% of people who actually need treatment to live.
  • Of the 2 million people who receive treatment for kidney failure, the majority are treated in only five countries – the United States, Japan, Germany, Brazil, and Italy. These five countries represent only 12% of the world population. Only 20% are treated in about 100 developing countries that make up over 50% of the world population.
  • In middle-income countries, treatment with dialysis or kidney transplantation creates a huge financial burden for the majority of the people who need it. In another 112 countries, many people cannot afford treatment at all, resulting in the death of over 1 million people annually from untreated kidney failure.
  • In the US, treatment of chronic kidney disease is likely to exceed $48 billion per year. Treatment for kidney failure consumes 6.7% of the total Medicare budget to care for less than 1% of the covered population.30 million people or 15% of US adults are estimated to have CKD. 48% of those with severely reduced kidney function but not on dialysis are not aware of having CKD. Most (96%) people with kidney damage or mildly reduced kidney function are not aware of having CKD.
  • In China, the economy will lose US$558 billion over the next decade due to effects on death and disability attributable to heart disease and kidney disease.
  • In Uruguay, the annual cost of dialysis is close to $ US 23 million, representing 30% of the budget of the National Resources Fund for specialized therapies.
  • In England, according to a recent report published by NHS Kidney Care, chronic kidney disease costs more than breast, lung, colon and skin cancer combined.
  • In Australia, treatment for all current and new cases of kidney failure through 2020 will cost an estimated $12 billion. 
  • In people aged 65 through 74 worldwide, it is estimated that one in five men, and one in four women, have CKD.
