The Global Challenge in Ear and Hearing Health


The Public Health Planning for Hearing Impairment (PHPHI) course was converted successfully to on-line teaching in 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The 2021 PHPHI course will be held online in Hyderabad, India, Nairobi, Kenya, Islamabad, Pakistan, Manila, Philippines, and Harare, Zimbabwe.
I am very pleased that the PHPHI course will be held for the first time in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in June/July 2021.
