March 3rd 2018 is the 4th Edition of the World Birth Defects Day (WBDD).
The vision for WBDD is to raise birth defects awareness.
Birth defects impact millions of families and a sustained focus is needed to support research, prevention, treatment and services.

The goal of the 2017 Campaign on Thunderclap was met and we exceeded our expectations:

Many thanks to the Participating Organizations (a total of 77) in the 2017 Edition of the WBDD and to all those who joined us in celebrating the Day.
