The World Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Day’s third edition kicks- off with a theme “Access to Healthcare for all". It reminds the public and policy makers that Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus are a reality and increases awareness to improve the lives of people living with these conditions while celebrating many achievements made by our enthusiastic worldwide community.

Persons with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus and their parents need healthcare and social services to coordinate and cooperate with each other, in order to deliver appropriate, timely, adequate and efficient treatment and support. Services provided at an affordable and accessible multidisciplinary clinic are the best way to treat, support, and follow up a person with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus.
