    Thanks for the interest with hydrocephalus in Australia!
    The Hydrocephalus Support Association (Australia) has been working with our patron Neurosurgeon on this proposal and he met with the former secretary of health and aging, we have assisted by arranging members to send letters of support. We are hopeful that the proposal will be accepted by the Australian Government although it is an election year here this year.
