Prevention and Detection

Otoacoustic emission (OAE) exams for children
Since 2004 we offer otoacoustic emissions(OAE) exams free of charge to communities in rural and/or marginal areas. These exams also promote awareness of the timely detection of hearing loss in children under 6 years.

Audiometry for young people and adults
4 out of 10 adults have hearing loss. Hearing loss is becoming more frequent during the youth. In coordination with community authorities and health centers, we carry out audiometry campaigns in the communities targeting young people, adults and the elderly.

Informational prevention campaigns
It is extremely important that families are informed about their rights to demand education for their children. Therefore, the CORAL field team also gives informative talks about hearing loss.
