Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland
Some words about Us
In 1968 a small group of parents whose children had Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus established a voluntary organisation which would highlight awareness of these two conditions and support families, individuals and carers who were affected. Their determination and dedication resulted in the establishment of The Irish Association for Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus (IASBAH). The association was formed by parents who were committed to taking action to improve the prospects of people who were living with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus in Ireland.
These parents were pioneers who laid the foundations for what is now a nationally recognised organisation. Their optimistic spirit encouraged them to affect real change for people who had the conditions, their families and carers. In April 2008 the National Association of Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland Ltd was formed, and trades as Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland (SBHI).
