Detection of Hearing Newborns





History Logs

Project Description

Region: Eastern Europe

Country: Ukraine

Location: Kyiv

Total Budget: $57,315

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health

In developed countries, there is a system for auditory screenings of newborns and appropriate early intervention. In Ukraine, there is no system of early detection of hearing impairment. Diagnostic and therapeutic options in Ukraine are limited

As a result, hearing impairment is detected quite late, which often leads to irreparable consequences

Our task is to create an opportunity for early diagnosis of hearing impairment of newborn babies and timely clinical intervention

A child who will be able to hear the World - can talk to this world

This is a project on how everyone has the right to get a chance to escape from the Silence of the World. We have the strong determination to do our best, but we NEED SUPPORT from International Rotary Society to make it possible ...

There are 488 million hearing impaired people in the world

On average, 3-4% of newborn babies are born with a hearing impairment

On the queue for the Cochlear Implants operation (NU "Institute of Otolaryngology named after Prof. О.S.Коlomiichenko NAMC of Ukraine") - 415 children (up to 22.05.2018)

In Ukraine, ~ 5-8% of the population suffers hearing impairment

Stage I: 17 regions of Ukraine

to provide devices for auditory screenings to the listed hospitals

We have 5000 USD, 57 315 USD to go our project!

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
