Auður Guðjónsdóttir Registered Nurse OR chairman of ISCI met Amina J. Mohammed Deputy Secret ary– General of the United Nations in Iceland and brought her attention to the contents of the enclosed letter.

Since you are currently in Iceland, I wanted to use this opportunity to thank you personally for having inspired courage within me and shown my vision respect when you personally responded to the two letters that I sent to Ban Ki-moon in 2014. At the time, I was trying to have spinal injuries and the nervous system included in the developmental goals. Unfortunately, that did not work. However, the Icelandic standing committee in New York managed to include the concept of neurological disorders in the UN goals of 2015.
