World birth defects day ..March 3rd
Posted on 8th September 2016

Each year, NCBDDD partners with more than 120 organizations around the world to raise awareness of birth defects on March 3rd 
Together, we aim to raise awareness about the impact of birth defects, as well as increase opportunities for prevention of birth defects by promoting the following:
1..  Increasing the number of birth defects monitoring programs around the world
2... Improving existing birth defects monitoring programs
3... Improving access to care for people with birth defects
4..  Continuing research to identify causes of birth defects, particularly if they can be modified in order to prevent birth defects
CDC has created birth defects tracking and research systems in the United States and around the world that help to identify the causes and long-term results of some birth defects.
The World Health Organization declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on February 1, 2016 due to the association of Zika virus infection and microcephaly and other neurological disorders in babies born to mothers who were infected during pregnancy. CDC responded to the 2016 Zika virus outbreak by creating tracking and research systems to better understand birth defects that are linked to Zika virus infection. This information helps answer key questions about the chance of infection during pregnancy, provides information for clinical recommendations, and improves prevention.
Preventing some birth defects with folic acid: If a woman has enough folic acid, a B vitamin, in her body before and during pregnancy, it can help prevent major birth defects of the baby’s brain and spine, called neural tube defects. CDC recommends that women of reproductive age get 400 micrograms of folic acid each day to help prevent neural tube defects
Every year nearly 8 million babies around the world—6 percent of all births—are born with a serious birth defect.1 In many countries, birth defects are one of the leading causes of death in infants and young children.2 Babies who survive and live with these conditions are at an increased risk for long-term disabilities. In the spirit of global partnership, CDC and the International Clearinghouse for Birth Defects Surveillance and Research (ICBDSR) are collaborating with 10 other organizations to implement World Birth Defects Day (World BD Day
