Ear Bus ‘Get Loud in India’ Project
This project aims to address hearing loss and ear disease in Rural India, which is a silent and growing epidemic.
The project will :
- provide higher quality community-based hearing care for people from rural and low income settings in India through partners of Christian Medical College (CMC) Vellore;
- provide an ‘Ear Bus’ to improve access to hearing healthcare for the poor in rural and remote areas of India;
- support identification of people who might benefit from hearing aids and cochlear implants;
- help CMC Vellore doctors operational linkages to rural not-for-profit settings.
