A Voice for The Invisible Child: Childhood Heart Disease and the Global Health Agenda (image) Children's HeartLink Share Print E-Mail Caption Over one million children are born with congenital heart disease (CHD) each year. When children with CHD receive timely treatment, 85 percent can survive into adulthood to live healthy, productive lives.
