Congenital Heart Defects Screening

Congenital heart defects (CHD) is one of the most common birth defects and a leading cause of mortality among newborns and children in general. If detected early and treated promptly, the chances of recovery are significantly high. Children with CHD who are born and raised in remote areas, on the other hand, confront numerous diagnostic and treatment obstacles. Many children cannot be diagnosed quickly due to lack of resources, challenging travel conditions, and distance from major medical centers. In many situations, when a child's heart defect is detected, it is severe, resulting in numerous dangerous complications.

With the aim of detecting all poor children with congenital heart defects as soon as possible and providing them with the opportunity to have surgery through the free heart surgery program, the Vietnam Children's Fund Social Enterprise (VCF SE) has worked with sponsors, authorities, and hospital partners to deploy free heart screenings for poor children in the past.

VCF SE and partners have arranged mobile clinics in remote areas to meet with young children and examine their cardiac health.

The children are undergoing auscultation and echocardiograms throughout each test to look for abnormal signals. Cases indicated for surgery but lacking financial resources are helped through the application for free heart surgery program, ensuring timely surgical intervention.

Through these meaningful activities, VCF SE has supported numerous children receiving diagnoses, examinations and treatments for CHD. Early screening and detection of heart defects not only ensures that these children have a healthy heart and normal childhood, but also helps alleviate hardships in their families.
