Abstract

Congenital anomalies (CA) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in infants and children. More than 100,000 children with CA are born in EU each year. The European Surveillance of Congenital Anomalies (EUROCAT) is a network of population based congenital anomaly registries in Europe currently surveying 31% of EU birth population. EUROCAT has been awarded funding for 2011-2013 as a Joint Action between EU and member states. The Joint Action EUROCAT aims to use harmonised data on CA across EU to assess prevalence of all birth outcomes, the impact of primary prevention, and developments in prenatal screening. Joint Action EUROCAT will serve as an early warning of teratogen exposures, and act as an information centre regarding clusters, and exposures to risk factors of concern, including new medicine used in pregnancy, ail pollution, swine flu vaccination, and chronic maternal diseases as obesity and diabetes.
