An Saol 2016 Election Pledge
We are the families, friends, and supporters of persons affected by a severe Acquired Brain Injury (sABI). We have established the An Saol Foundation as a non-profit organisation. An Saol will afford every opportunity to survivors of sABI to live their life with dignity and respect, to continue to improve, to regain as much independence and self-determination as possible, and for their injuries to heal, supported by adequate therapies. We will offer advice and support to families and friends affected by sABI.

In the lead up to the 2016 general election, we would like to invite all candidates to pledge their support for persons with severe Acquired Brain Injury (sABI) and their families.

Please take a few minutes to answer the following very brief questions. (Please note that we will share the outcome with our supporters and the media.)

Q1: Do you support the ratification by Ireland of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)?
Ireland is one of only three of the 28 EU member states who have not ratified the CRPD. The EU as a whole acceded to the convention, the first legally binding core international human rights instrument to which the EU is party.
Q2: Do you support our call for a new strategy on neuro rehabilitation?
The "Strategy on Neuro Rehabilitation 2011-2015" failed miserably, not even producing a draft implementation plan. A new strategy needs to be developed, together with the stakeholders, as a matter of urgency, underpinned by solid data and supported by an adequate budget for its implementation.
Q3: Are you willing to meet with the families and friends of those affected by sABI?
By listening to those affected by sABI, you will realise that the current situation is simply unsustainable. The way survivors of sABI are being treated by the health system today is unworthy of a civilised society. Their continued and relentless fight for the rights of their loved ones against all odds will shock, inspire, and move you to tears - removing any doubt you might still have about the urgency of their appeal.
