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 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.

We will publish a WFAAW toolkit well in advance, so you can help to highlight the importance of both folic acid supplementation and fortification.
