The Spina Bifida statistics for Alaska are as follows: About 3.96 babies out of 10,000 births are being born with this condition.  This is according to the data which was collected during the years of 2001 – 2005. SB is becoming a serious issue as the number of people affected with SB is growing with each passing year.

Today, about 272 people are currently living in the state of Alaska with this health issue. This is based on the national estimate of the people affected with this disease. Reports have shown that the state has about 218,608 women who are at risk of giving SB births.

The state of Alaska has clinics, medical centers, and facilities in Anchorage, which provides help and assistance to people having this medical problem. However there is not an SBA Chapter, Support Groups or Charity here.
