ASPN – HVO – IPNA Partnership




In partnership with the American Society for Pediatric Nephrology (ASPN) and the International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA), Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO) is developing an exciting new initiative to support pediatric nephrology education and training in low-resource settings. We are currently seeking nephrologists with an interest in e-volunteering (virtual lectures, online case discussions) at Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) in Siem Reap, Cambodia. HVO is an organization committed to building health worker capacity through the teaching and training of health professionals in resource-scarce countries. The success of HVO projects is dependent on volunteers who donate their time
and expertise to train their colleagues around the world.
