World Birth Defects Day

Every year nearly 8 million babies around the world are born with a serious birth defect. Half of these birth defects (1 in 33) will be detected soon after birth, the other half will be diagnosed during the first years of life. 

In many countries, birth defects are one of the leading causes of death in infants and young children.  Babies who survive and live with these conditions are at an increased risk for long-term disabilities. 

The goal of the campaign is to expand birth defects prevention, care and research worldwide.
