Mohan Kameswaran gives a talk on his research foundation's work with tackling the vast need for otological treatment in low resource settings. The Madras ENT Research Foundation has had to tackle issues of agrarian isolation, lack of awareness, cultural barriers and practices, and huge swathes of the population living under the poverty line to deliver much needed treatment.
India, and the state of Tamil Nadu where Dr Kameswaran is based, has an ever-growing problem of hearing disability. Mohan tells how he succeeded in gaining government funding and support to expand access to treatment dramatically and make significant headway in tackling this issue on a national scale.
This lecture was part of the event 'Latest advances in imaging of the auditory system'. It was held at The Royal Society of Medicine in London.
