Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We have great pleasure in inviting you to Accra, Ghana from the 20-23rd February 2013 to participate in the 12th Congress of the African Association of Nephrology, the 5th Congress of the African Paediatric Nephrology Association and the 2nd Congress of the Ghana Kidney Association.
The theme of the Congress is “Working towards healthy kidneys”
The meeting will be held at the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons in Accra Ghana. This is a neo-classical venue of great architectural interest and is in the centre of Accra. The scientific programme has been carefully designed to blend advances in nephrology within the context of nephrology in a resource challenged developing world. A day of CMEs on 20th February will precede the main conference proceedings. There will be a second ISN Go African Regional workshop on 23rd February.
Accra is the perfect city to begin your exploration of the beauty and mystery of Africa. Situated in Ghana on the Atlantic West Coast of Africa, Accra has many things to offer.
For those with a little bit of time there will be the opportunity to explore tropical rainforests, the ancient Asante capital of Kumasi and the traditions and golden riches of the Kings of Asante or the notorious slave castles on the Atlantic coast.
The people of Ghana pride themselves on their friendliness and hospitality and we look forward to welcoming you to Accra in February 2013.
