Make hearing loss test mandatory in new-borns

After a recent survey pointed out that four out of every 1,000 new-borns have hearing loss in the
country, doctors point out that mandatory screening of hearing ability can reduce the risk of late
detection.
Chennai: As Tamil Nadu does not have mandatory screening under Universal New-born Hearing Screening
(UNHS), experts say it should be made compulsory as in the neighbouring State of Kerala.
