Jordanian AKU Society




The Jordanian AKU society was established in 2012 at the Faculty of Medicine at Mutah University/ Alkarak/ Jordan. Their vision is to increase awareness about AKU amongst health care providers and the community in Jordan. The aims of the society are to conduct research projects about AKU in Jordan, to identify patients with AKU, and to provide counseling, information and support to AKU patients and their families.

They established an AKU research team including dietitian, biochemist, clinical pharmacologist, orthopedic, radiologist, ophthalmologist, ENT and dentist. They have strong International collaboration with the AKU Society in the UK and with other AKU societies worldwide. Their research team is the only group in the region that conducts research on AKU. They also communicate and provide counselling to AKU patients from different countries in the region (Palestine, Egypt, Algeria, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and UAE).
