About SCID Compass

SCID Compass offers educational materials, access to family networking, and advocacy on a national level, with the goal of improving outcomes for children born with SCID.

SCID is a genetic disorder in which an infant is born without a functioning immune system. The immune system is unable to protect the infant against infection. As a result, a child with SCID has recurrent and persistent illnesses that are life-threatening.

SCID Compass provides information on SCID diagnosis, treatment, and support through:, printed materials, and links to SCID communities through social media and mailing lists.

A program of the Immune Deficiency Foundation, SCID Compass is funded through a federal grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
