  • Description:
    Strategic direction -- Thermatic areas: Saving babies; Helping children; Protecting people, Improving health.

    Mission: We work to save babies by studying and addressing the causes of birth defects; help children reach their potential by understanding developmental disabilities; reduce complications of blood disorders; and improve the health of people living with disabilities.

    Vision: Babies are born healthy. Children reach their potential. And everyone thrives.

    The National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities was established at CDC in April 2001 as a result of the Children's Health Act of 2000. Currently, the center includes three divisions—the Division of Congenital and Developmental Disorders, the Division of Human Development and Disability, and the Division of Blood Disorders. While sister agencies and operating divisions have essential roles to play in helping Americans thrive, CDC’s unique role includes detecting and responding to new and emerging health threats; tackling the biggest health problems causing death and disability for Americans; putting science and advanced technology into action to prevent disease; promoting healthy and safe behaviors, communities and environments; developing leaders and training the public health workforce, including disease detectives; and taking the health pulse of our nation. The center’s budget peaked in FY 2010 at $143.6 million.
