Welcome to the National Birth Defects Prevention Network (NBDPN) website. The NBDPN is a volunteer-based organization that addresses the issues of birth defects surveillance, research and prevention under one umbrella by maintaining a national network of state and population-based birth defects programs. Members include public health officials, epidemiologists, academics, parents, and others committed to understanding factors that may lead to birth defects, identifying strategies for reducing birth defects, and working to prevent potential secondary disabilities.

Please contact us at if you have any problems and/or suggestions on the website redesign.
