The mission of the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA) is to optimize outcomes for individuals with oral cleft and craniofacial conditions through education, support, research, advocacy, and interdisciplinary team care. The former Cleft Palate Foundation merged with ACPA in June 2017 and its important work now continues as ACPA Family Services.
ACPA is an international non-profit medical society of health care professionals who treat and/or perform research on birth defects of the head and face. There are currently over 2500 members in the association, representing more than 30 disciplines in 60 countries. The members of ACPA serve an extremely important role in the management of children and adults with cleft lip, cleft palate, and craniofacial anomalies. For 70 years, their goal has been to provide optimal care for this group of patients and their families.
