World Folic Acid Awareness Week


Every January the International Federation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus will work with its member organisations, partners and supporters to promote World Folic Acid Awareness Week (WFAAW) as part of the IF Global Prevention Initiative to reduce the worldwide risk of neural tube defects (NTDs) and Hydrocephalus. Still far too many women remain unaware of the need to take folic acid at the critical time BEFORE they get pregnant.

In 2020, the WFAAW will take place from Monday 6th – Sunday 12th of January.

Wherever you are in the world, we really need you to engage in sharing knowledge and information to help make the week a success. It’s a global concern, so we need to raise awareness as far and as wide as possible.
