About The Asian Spinal Cord Network

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. ASCoN has 75 member organisations in 18 countries in Asia.

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 member organisations to learn from each other;
• Good examples of SCI management can be replicated across the region.

ASCoN became an affiliated society of the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) in 2004.
