Birth defects are a global problem, but their impact is particularly severe in middle and low income countries where more than 94 percent of the births with serious birth defects and 95 percent of the deaths of these children occur. Serious birth defect can be lethal. For those who survive, these disorders can cause lifelong mental, physical, auditory or visual disability. The report shows that at least 3.3 million children under five years of age die from birth defects each years. More than 70% of birth defects can be prevented. Educate the community about the birth defects and the opportunities for effective care and prevention.
