World Folic Acid Awareness Week

World Folic Acid Awareness Week

World Folic Acid Awareness Week runs from the 9th – 15th January.

Every January the International Federation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus will work with its member organisations, partners and supporters to promote World Folic Acid Awareness Week as part of their Global Prevention Initiative to reduce the worldwide risk of NTDs and Hydrocephalus. Still far too many women remain unaware of the need to take folic acid at the critical time BEFORE they get pregnant.
