Speaking at the occasion, Venkatesham said, “It’s not wrong to have a disability. With the right amount of treatment hearing disabilities can be cured. One must not hesitate to ask for help if any problem is found in hearing.” DPK Babu, director, Ashray-Akruti, said, “There is a great need to focus on the ear and hearing health of the people in the community.

At present our country lacks professionals like ENT specialists, audiologists and speech therapists and the needs of these people is largely unmet. We should think about having professionally capacitated community health workers in the area of ear health who would work among the people in the community.
