About The Asian Spinal Cord Network  
The Asian Spinal Cord Network (ASCoN) was initiated in 2001 following a meeting of regional experts during the International Conference on Spinal Cord Lesion Management hosted by the Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed (CRP), Bangladesh. ASCoN has 75 member organisations in 18 countries in Asia. 
Why ASCoN is Important  ? 

  • Organisations working in the field of spinal cord injury (SCI) management can address similar problems experienced; 
  • There are increased opportunities for ASCoN member organisations to learn from each other;
  • Good examples of SCI management can be replicated across the region. ASCoN became an affiliated society of the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) in 2004.



The 22nd ASCoN conference 2023
The 22nd ASCoN conference 2023 aims to promote co-operation and sharing of skills, knowledge and ideas between ASCoN members. It brings together health care professionals, persons living with spinal injury, policy makers and managers from around the globe. Numerous practical workshops for multi-disciplinary team members and consumers are conducted during the Conference. The ASCoN Conference provides an excellent platform to advocate for policy change and enhanced services for people with SCI, enabling them to lead fuller lives.
