Enhancing Health through the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD)

The National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) has been working tirelessly to improve the health and well-being of individuals with disabilities. As part of its efforts, the NCBDDD has implemented 19 state-based and two national programs aimed at increasing access to preventive care and health promotion for people with disabilities, as well as ensuring that athletes with disabilities receive necessary healthcare screenings.

In recent years, healthcare providers have been able to make significant improvements in their treatment of Muscular Dystrophy thanks to research findings from the NCBDDD. Similarly, babies born with Spina Bifida, which affects more than 1,400 infants annually, are receiving better care throughout their lives thanks to data on treatments and surgical care provided by the NCBDDD.

The NCBDDD’s work has also had a positive impact on individuals living with Congenital Heart Defects (CHD). With nearly 2.5 million people in the United States affected by CHD, the NCBDDD’s data on possible health challenges and treatment needs has helped individuals and their healthcare providers to improve care, enabling them to live longer and healthier lives.
