The prevention of folic acid preventable Neural Tube Defects (NTDs) and Hydrocephalus presents us with a worldwide challenge that we all share, and the goal of the IFGPI is to improve awareness and global action. Over the past year we have been working to develop both national and international networks, promote mandatory fortification with folic acid, increase knowledge and understanding of prevention measures, and increase accessibility to key educational information.
