About the World Cleft Coalition

The World Cleft Coalition (WCC) is an alliance of international non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) that work in the area of cleft lip and palate and engage in long-term local capacity-building partnerships. The WCC was initiated at the 13th International Congress of Cleft Lip and Palate and Related Craniofacial Anomalies in Chennai in 2017. The remit set for the group by Congress delegates was to encourage international collaboration in the development of an agreed set of globally-recognized minimum core practice guidelines and best practice guidelines for safe and comprehensive cleft care.

Collaborating organizations: American Cleft Palate Craniofacial Association, European Cleft Organization, Global Smile Foundation, Operation Smile, Smile Train, and Transforming Faces.
