Fiscal Year 2011

CDC’s National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) fiscal year (FY) 2011 operating plan includes $136 million for Child Health, Disabilities, and Blood Disorders, which is $7.5 million below FY 2010. This 5 percent reduction eliminated the following programs:

  • Charcot Marie Tooth Disorders
  • Alveolar Capillary Dysplasia
  • Diamond Blackfan Anemia

The rationale used to identify reductions included:

  • Consistency with National Center priorities
  • Consistency with Agency priorities
  • Demonstrated impact of public health programs
  • Equitable reductions across broad programmatic activities

In addition, significant reductions have been taken from across the remaining program lines.

Funds are currently supporting surveillance, research, and prevention activities that are addressing issues with the greatest public health burden and implementing strategies to improve health outcomes.
