Date of event

10 March 2021 


This event will be targeting everyone from the general public to medical students to practicing medical professionals in one of the most underdeveloped part of Pakistan i.e. interior Sindh. The awareness of kidney disease and health remains non-existent hence the initiative to target this specific region. There will be 2 talks by leading nephrologist of the country (Dr. Ahad Qayyum Lahore & Prof. Saeed Akhtar Islamabad) in the auditorium of the local medical college which will target medical students and healthcare professionals. This will be followed by a visit to the local radio station of the area (FM 96.6) where we will air renal related information from the ISN toolkit. After that there will be an awareness walk to the city centre with banners and pamphlets in local language.
