World Birth Defects Day 2017

                       

Every year, millions of babies around the world are born with a serious birth defect. In many countries, birth defects are one of the leading causes of death in babies and young children. Babies who survive and live with these conditions are at an increased risk for long-term disabilities and other health problems. 

The goal of the World Birth Defects Day is to expand birth defects surveillance, prevention, care, and research worldwide.
