The Seville Spina Bifida Association: Supporting People with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus and Their Families

The Seville Spina Bifida Association (ASEB, Spanish acronym)  (in Spanish) was established on December 14, 1987, in Seville, Spain to promote the care for children and adults with disabilities, especially those affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus, in the fields of health, employment, education, leisure, and family and social relationships. The Association defends the dignity and rights of people with spina bifida and hydrocephalus, as well as all other disabilities. ASEB promotes research on topics related to spina bifida and hydrocephalus, including health, therapies, and interventions, and maintains relationships with national and foreign centers and institutions in all matters related to the medical and technological advances that can improve the lives of people with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. The Association promotes the quality of life and inclusion of children and adults with spina bifida and hydrocephalus and promotes their physical and mental well-being and the maintenance of their social, work, educational, and family relationships through workshops for people with and without disabilities (in Spanish). ASEB also promotes the elimination of social, communication, architectural, and transportation barriers that may affect people with spina bifida, hydrocephalus, and other disabilities in any area of their lives and promotes their integral development through leisure and recreational activities (in Spanish), including cultural activities and sports. The Association promotes equal opportunities between women and men with and without disabilities, promotes family reconciliation, and fights against gender violence and double discrimination faced by women with disabilities. Finally, ASEB promotes the participation and inclusion of women with disabilities in the political, economic, cultural, and social life of the community.
