The ASBIHP, Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association of Portugal is a Private Institution of Social Solidarity that provides support to people with Spina Bifida or Hydrocephalus and their families. It is formed by family, coaches, friends and by the people affected by this congenital malformation of the neural tube. The Association currently has about 1740 members and three delegations, Coimbra, Porto, Ribatejo, Tagus Valley and Aveiro. We have a scientific advisory board offering support to all matters arising out of our associates and all citizens requiring information or support and referrals deemed necessary to address the problems of our associates. The association maintains some protocols with pharmaceutical and hygiene products, which provide our patients the acquisition of some everyday consumer products and rapid wear at reduced prices.
