Babies screened for hearing defects in the Philippines

To save more babies from experiencing hearing defects while growing up,
Mayor Christian D. Natividad conducted the first Universal Newborn
Hearing Screening Program in the Philippines this year. The program was
launched recently at the Malolos Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital.
Natividad said the program is beneficial to babies who may have or
develop hearing defects.
