The KDIGO Controversies Conference on Women and Kidney Health will take place in Athens, Greece on February 2-5, 2023. This KDIGO Controversies Conference will convene a global panel of individuals with multidisciplinary clinical and scientific expertise (i.e., nephrology, obstetrics, reproductive health, pediatrics/neonatology, etc.) and patients to identify key gender and sex issues in kidney care and to optimize reproductive care of women with CKD and women who have developed hypertensive disorders of pregnancy or pregnancy-related AKI.
With the support of an in-depth review of the most relevant literature, the goal of this conference is to describe current best practices and to identify areas of uncertainty, address ongoing controversial issues, and outline research needed to move the field forward.
Drs. Giorgina Piccoli (Centre Hospitalier Le Mans, France) and Christina Wyatt (Duke University, United States) will co-chair this conference.
