Cross-sectional study on prevalence and causes of hearing impairments in Karnali Province, Nepal

Established in 1978, NNJS as a non- for- profit organization, has been working in Nepal for more than 4 decades for promoting promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative eye care services. Currently, NNJS is providing primary secondary, tertiary and centre of excellence eye care services through 27 major eye hospitals, more than 150 primary eye care centres and few vertical programs throughout the country to combat preventable causes of avoidable blindness and vision impairment. 

NNJS Nepal is implementing an Integrated Eye and Ear Health Program in 10 districts of Karnali Province of Nepal since January 2021 financially supported by CBM Global. The major goal of the program is ‘’Improved Quality of Life of People of Karnali by Reducing Avoidable Causes of Vision and Hearing Impairment and Disability Inclusion.” 

Karnali is the most underprivileged province of Nepal. Status of persons with hearing difficulties is yet to be identified. So, reliable, standardized, population-based data on hearing impairment in Karnali province is of urgent need. NNJS with financial aid from CBM Global is seeking consulting firms/institutions to conduct provincial level survey on ear and hearing impairment based on WHO ear and hearing survey guideline.

Interested eligible firms/institutions are requested to apply via mail to hr@nnjs.org.np within 21 days from the 2nd date of publication. Details of ToRs can be downloaded from 1654407318.pdf (nnjs.org.np) .
