Why are Birth Defects a concern

Although some birth defects have a single abnormality, others have abnormalities in multiple body systems or organs. Birth defects may cause lifelong disability and illness, and with some, survival is not possible.

Some birth defects, such as intellectual disability, are non-treatable disabilities. However, many physical birth defects can be treated with surgery. Repair is possible for many birth defects including cleft lip or palate, and certain heart defects.
