Global Nutrition Partnership Program

Through the Global Nutrition Partnership Program (GNP), international sister societies from countries classified by the World Bank as low or middle income economies* may have a group of their members join ASPEN for a reduced membership fee.

The program makes membership in ASPEN more affordable and allows for more efficient payments in U.S. funds, each sister society can tout participation in the GNP as an additional member benefit to their own members and consider this program an opportunity to pave the way for future collaborations with ASPEN.

Program Benefits
All of the GNP Society’s participating individual members will receive:

  • Access to both of ASPEN’s peer-reviewed journals, the Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (JPEN) and Nutrition in Clinical Practice (NCP) electronically via internet and app. Print versions of the journal may be purchased for an additional fee.
  • Special discounts on all ASPEN events, publications, and merchandise.
  • Access to members-only content on the ASPEN website.
  • Access to ASPEN's private online member community, Member Connect, which provides the ability to interact with other members from around the world.
  • Access to ASPEN Clinical Nutrition Webinar Series
  • Full voting privileges and eligibility to participate in ASPEN’s many volunteer opportunities including committees and task forces
  • Participation in and access to all new member benefits that are added in the future.

Participation Requirements and Information

To participate, an individual must be a member of a national society that is the representative clinical nutrition organization in that country. The society will identify members, collect payment, and have each member complete a membership application or submit the information necessary to add each individual to the ASPEN database.  Participation in the program requires a minimum of 10 members from a sister society.

Dues Rates

ASPEN membership dues for this special program are based on the World Bank economic rating for the country of the primary clinical nutrition society.
