Summary 

The International Clearinghouse for Birth Defects Monitoring Systems (ICBDMS--later Surveillance and Research, ICBDSR) is a nongovernmental organization. 

For the Annual Report, around 40 organizations submitted data on 39 congenital anomalies. Data range from the subnational to multicountry levels, and not every organization's data are included in every table. Additional geographical areas with no listed contributing organizations may be represented in some tables.

The report includes data on fetal exposure to prescription drugs and malformation; multiple congenital anomalies (MCA) and teratogens; prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome (including maternal age and percentage of terminations in participating countries); information on monitoring systems in varying countries; and the number of cases and rates of selected birth defects among live births, stillbirths, and abortions from most participating organizations' data. This selection may change from year to year.
