Newborn Screening for SCID Approved in all states

Effort of decades led by JMF & IDF to get newborn screening for SCID approved in all states. State by state, IDF worked with local organisations, legislators, and statewide public health officials to break down the barriers and add SCID to the newborn screening panel in each state. IDF recently began work under a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to launch a 2-year programme – SCID Compass – to improve outcomes for infants with SCID detected through newborn screening.
