Situation

The Asian Spinal Cord Network (ASCoN) was initiated in 2001 following a meeting of regional experts during the International Conference on Spinal Cord Lesion Management hosted by the Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed (CRP), Bangladesh. Through ASCoN’s work •organisations working in the field of spinal cord injury (SCI) management can address similar problems experienced; •there are increased opportunities for ASCoN members organisations to learn from each other;

Solution

The ASCoN conference promotes co-operation and sharing of skills, knowledge and ideas between ASCoN members. It brings together health professionals, persons living with SCI, policy makers and managers from around the globe. Numerous practical workshops for multi-disciplinary team members and consumers are conducted during the Conference. The Conference provides an excellent platform to advocate for policy change and enhanced services for people with SCI, enabling them to lead fuller lives.
