(The survey data was collected by interviewing women of reproductive age in
a sample of households in 18 selected districts of Iraq. The rates for
spontaneous abortion, stillbirths and congenital birth defects found in the
study are consistent with or even lower than international estimates. The
study provides no clear evidence to suggest an unusually high rate of
congenital birth defects in Iraq.)

BBC: major Iraq birth defect study expected to show increase linked to

The BBC has reported that a much anticipated study by the WHO and Iraqi
Ministry of Health will show that rates of birth defects in Iraq are higher
in areas that were subject to heavy fighting in 2003.

The report, broadcast on BBC World and available online features an
interview with researchers at the Iraqi Ministry of Health (MoH). The
researchers indicate that the report, which has been produced jointly by
the WHO and MoH, will find that rates of birth defects are higher in areas
of Iraq that were subjected to heavy fighting in the 2003 war. The
publication of the final report, scheduled for early this year has been
delayed, but the BBC's report offers a first glimpse at the results.

“The BBC’s report fits with our expectations from smaller localised studies
and the reports of healthcare professionals in Iraq,” said an ICBUW
spokesperson. “Naturally we will await the publication of the full report
but should the findings and methodology prove to be robust, the study could
add considerably to the pressure for action to reduce the legacy of modern
conflict on public health. However more research will be needed to
establish the precise risk factors responsible.”
