This is my first post on this blog of my trip to Nepal, and what better reason to kick it off than the fact that today is World Hearing Day! The theme this year is “Childhood hearing loss: act now, here is how!”
Many of the causes of hearing loss in children can be prevented if there are adequate public health measures in place. Further, early diagnosis and intervention is vital for these children! So if you have a few minutes to spare today, use Google to find out something new about hearing loss in children that you didn’t know before!
And watch this space for daily reports from my trip to Nepal starting next week!
