Hydrocephalus Association
Action Center

Help ensure that our leaders have the proper information and insight to make informed decisions about policy outcomes that impact the future of the Hydrocephalus Association’s research programs and the lives of those who are impacted by hydrocephalus.

Hydrocephalus affects over 1 million Americans, ranging from infants and older children to young and middle-aged adults, as well as seniors. There is currently no cure for hydrocephalus. The only treatment requires brain surgery. We advocate to increase funding for research into hydrocephalus causes, treatments, and cures; and to address legislation that impacts the lives of people living with the daily challenges of hydrocephalus. Please join us by taking action below.
