Targeted Paediatric Hearing Screening Project in Zambia

We are delighted to be working with Zambia’s largest hospital, the University Teaching Hospital, to introduce targeted paediatric hearing screening. The aim of the project is to identify children with hearing loss as early as possible so that they can benefit from audiological, educational and support interventions to allow them to fulfil their potential in life.

We are pleased that Tersia de Kock, an audiologist and expert in early hearing detection and intervention, is with us this week to run theoretical and practical training at University Teaching Hospital.

Participants from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the Developmental Intervention Clinic, the ENT unit and Zambia National Association of the Hearing Impaired (ZNAHI) are all participating in training.
