Now an annual event, World Spinal Cord Injury Day will take place on Tuesday 5 September, aiming to increase awareness throughout the community.
This global day is an initiative of the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) and promotes disability inclusion throughout the world.
This year’s theme is “Yes we can”, challenging perceptions of what it means to have a spinal cord injury.
Society members, including the Australian and New Zealand Spinal Cord Society (ANZSCoS), will be undertaking activities to raise awareness about accessibility and reduce barriers for people with a spinal cord injury in their daily lives.
World Spinal Cord Injury Day is held during Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week, which is an initiative of the Australian Spinal Injury Alliance including our organisation.
