The mission of the Hydrocephalus Association is to find a cure for hydrocephalus and improve the lives of those impacted by the condition.
About the Hydrocephalus Association
Founded in 1983 by the parents of children with hydrocephalus, the Hydrocephalus Association (HA) is the nation’s largest and most widely respected organization dedicated to hydrocephalus. We fund high-impact research, provide support and educational resources for patients and caregivers, and advocate on behalf of the hydrocephalus community on key policies and legislation.
Since 2009, HA has invested over $13 million in cutting-edge research, making us the largest non-profit, non-governmental funder of hydrocephalus research in the United States.
HA's mission is to find a cure for hydrocephalus and improve the lives of those impacted by the condition.
Our vision is a world without hydrocephalus.
