Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Although the prevalence of congenital malformations is high in China, little information is available on the Hainan Province.
METHODS: Data used in this study were collected from 2000 to 2010 by monitoring newborns (including both live births and stillbirths) in the Hainan Province. Comparison analyses were conducted by performing χ(2) tests.
RESULTS: The data showed an increasing temporal trend of the birth defect prevalence in the Hainan Province; however, the rate of birth defects changed over time.
CONCLUSION: The Hainan Province is confronted with the challenge to reduce the prevalence of birth defects. Interventions should focus on the rural areas where a higher prevalence of birth defects is observed. Birth Defects Research (Part A) 97:750-754, 2013. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
