After consultation to its members, the ISPD Council adopted a new mission statement, changing from a knowledge-focused statement to one that better matches ISPD’s current activities and patient-centred approach.


A future in which PD is freely available and equitably accessible worldwide
as a reliable, affordable, sustainable and life-saving option
for patients with acute kidney injury or end stage kidney disease.


The purpose of the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis is to increase the global uptake,
promote quality practice, and achieve optimal outcomes of peritoneal dialysis
through enhanced advocacy, research, and education,
in order to improve the health and well-being of people
living with end-stage kidney disease or suffering from acute kidney injury.
