How can you help?

You can help bring hearing screening to all children, no matter where they are born.

Creating awareness of
timely screening

A majority of the Indian population believes that if a person is hearing impaired they can’t speak. Creating awareness about the criticality of timely screening is a part of our focus.

Developing affordable technology

After doing an immersive research we boiled it down to five unique must-have features for Sohum to perform in resource constrained settings around the world and built these into the device.

Building an
after-care cycle

We have a unique audiologist network to assist our device. Every child tested positive will be referred to Sohum certified audiologist. In this way, interventions will be ensured and measured with follow-ups.

  • Developing affordable technology

    The solution performs in noisy settings, reduces the risk of sedation of baby, doesn’t need disposables and is easy to sterilize and reuse.

  • Building an aftercare cycle

    We have formed a professional network of audiologist/ ENT professionals to do aftercare for the hearing impaired newborns.

  • Creating awareness

    We have started implementing our awareness solution “Baby’s first year” calendar in multiple Indian languages in both mobile and print media to increase awareness.
