Mexico – Centro Oaxaqueño de Rehabilitación de Audición y Lenguaje

In 2014 UNWG purchased two portable audiometers for early detection and prevention of hearing loss among children from the underserviced, marginalized and rural areas of the State of Oaxaca.

CORAL has implemented 52 hearing health campaigns reaching a total of 1,524 boys and girls from 11 different villages. 51 children were diagnosed with hearing loss and referred for treatment.

A follow-up strategy is in place with ten trained community workers tracking results and informing parents on the causes of hearing impairment, the risks and treatment options available.
