World Birth Defects Day


World Birth Defects Day

The International Federation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus and 11 other international organisations working on birth defects created the first World Birth Defects Day (WBDD) on 3 March 2015 to raise awareness of this serious global health concern and advocate for more prevention, care and research to help babies and children. Now each year we use this day to urge the public, governments, non-governmental organizations, policymakers, researchers and health care providers around the world to help us work together toward a healthy future for all children.

If your organisation wants to help us in our efforts, please fill out the Application Form today and tell us how you will support WBDD!

Throughout the year, you can also follow the social media accounts of WBDD on Facebook and on Twitter.
