Dear Delegates,

On behalf of the Scientific Board of the MEA Nephrology Forum, we take great pleasure in inviting you to attend the 16th Middle East and Africa Nephrology Forum which is going to be held on 21st-23rd September 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The theme of this year’s meeting is “Walking on the  Update Track in Nephrology“

The world of Nephrology has come a really long way since its early days. It is frustrating though to realize that most of the up-to-date knowledge does not reach its natural recipients who are the practicing Nephrologists. For this reason, we realized that presenting innovative series in all Nephrology fields would fill that gap.The present forum is a continuum  of  the educational activities that have extended for many years without interval. A panel of dedicated speakers from Europe, Middle East  and Africa has worked hard to accomplish the task of covering current views and advances in various fields from prevention to management. The participating nephrologists’ feedback of last year’s forum enlightened us in selecting the topics for this year's meeting. The sessions and workshops will be attended by approximately 180 participants from across Middle East & Africa.

In this year’s program, the faculty will present and actively discuss various topics which are of  significant importance in the region. We will cover Clinical Nephrology e.g. diagnosis and management of patients with kidney diseases , pathophysiological and clinical issues , Dialysis ( Hemodialysis, Peritoneal Dialysis, Acute Dialysis) and Transplantation.

For CME Accreditation of the event, an application has been made to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) and  also Endorsements from  ERA-EDTA - European Dialysis and Transplant Association and SPN- Sociedade Portuguesa de Nefrologia.

 Looking forward to welcoming you at the 16th MEA Nephrology Forum in Lisbon 2019!
