This Quick Reference Handbook of Selected Congenital Anomalies and Infections is a companion tool to Birth defects surveillance: a manual for programme managers, and is intended for use by front-line health care professionals who are diagnosing and collecting data on congenital defects and infections.

When used in conjunction with the manual, the tools in this handbook will help the reader to:
1. identify an initial list of congenital anomalies to consider for monitoring;
2. describe the tools needed to define and code identified cases;
3. define specific congenital anomalies under surveillance.
