On 1st Day, we oriented 9 Community Medicine Assistants on conducting opportunistic hearing loss screening using the free version of the hearWHO app and referral. The next day on WHD 2023, we oriented 31 Female Community Health Volunteers on hearing and speech developmental milestones of a child, common signs and symptoms of ear ailments and hearing loss, ongoing infant hearing screening at immunization centers, and DOs and DONTs for ear and hearing care. We used resource manuals developed by the Nepal government and WHD materials (translated into Nepali) for the two-day interactive sessions.
