WHO handbook – Hearing Screening

Posted in News

The World Health Organization published a handbook on ‘Hearing Screening: Considerations for implementation’. “The handbook provides guidance on important factors to be considered when developing a hearing screening programme; examples include who should be screened, the aim of the programme, the frequency of screening, the tools to be used, etc. Each of the three sections considers these and other relevant questions that must be answered during the planning phase. In addition, the sections give evidence-based options and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the different options, so that countries can implement those which best suit their local context.”
