CHD Facts

CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS (CHD) FACTS:

Congenital heart defects are America’s & every country’s #1 birth defect. Nearly one of every 100 babies is born with a CHD.
Almost half all children & adults with complex congenital heart disease have neurological & developmental disabilities.
More than 50% of all children born with congenital heart defect will require at least one invasive surgery in their lifetime.
Each year approximately 40,000 babies are born in the United States with a congenital heart defect. Thousands of them will not reach their first birthday & thousands more die before they reach adulthood.
There are more than 40 different types of congenital heart defects. Little is known about the cause of most of them. There is no known prevention or cure for any of them. 
In the United States, twice as many children die from congenital heart defects each year than from all forms of childhood cancer combined, yet funding for pediatric cancer research is five times higher than funding for CHD. 
Congenital heart defects are the leading cause of all infant deaths in the United States. 
For the first time, more than 50% of the CHD survivors are adults.
Congenital heart defects are the #1 cause of birth defect related deaths.
