4th Intl Conference on Birth defects and Disabilities in the Developing World
4-7 October 2009 – New Delhi, INDIA
With the substantial control of infections and nutritional disorders, birth defects have emerged as a major global cause of death and disability. Every year an estimated 7.8 million children are born in the world with a serious genetic or acquired birth defect. Of these 3.3 million die each year. The impact of birth defects is particularly severe in developing countries where 90% of births and 95% of deaths of children with serious birth defects occur. The conference is timely as most developing countries lack comprehensive programs for care and control of birth defects, either because their importance is underestimated or because they perceive lack of resources. This conference will demonstrate why both these notions are incorrect
