Deafness is the world's commonest disability and has devastating consequences to those who suffer with it.

BRINOS, founded in 1988, is dedicated to the detection, treatment and prevention of deafness in Nepal. From a survey conducted by BRINOS in 1990/91 50% of all deafness is preventable. BRINOS has undertaken 50 ear surgery camps (over 4000 major ear operations), and has established a primary ear care programme in Nepalgunj in southwest Nepal.

Specially trained ear health assistants diagnose and treat ear disease, supply and fit hearing aids, screen school children and working with 1400 female volunteers teach prevention of ear disease.

BRINOS is currently seeking funding to build an Ear Care Centre in Nepalgunj. This will house both the Primary Ear Care Programme and ear surgery.
