Report on Bangla Sign Language Training at NIENT!

Health care service providers in Bangladesh got their ever first Bangla sign
language (BaSL) training initiated by the Non-Communicable Disease
Control (NCDC) program of DGHS under the Ministry of Health & Family
Welfare. National Institute of ENT and Centre for Disability in Development
(CDD) jointly organized the training for health care service providers
including doctors, nurses, and SACMOs. Total 166 persons including 52
doctors, 60 nurses and 54 SACMOs, were trained from 50 sub-districts of 33
districts in 8 divisions of the country. Gender parity was considered while
selecting from the available staff at different stations across the country and
we achieved 46% female and 54% male participants. On an average of one
thousand and two hundred Bangla sign words preferring on medical and
daily life conversation have been taught to the participants so that they may
have effective communication with deaf people and provide them with best
health care services across the country. There were corresponding sessions on
hearing organs, their functions & problems, available treatments &
remedies, and rehabilitation of persons with deafness through medical
interventions and reducing communication gap with hearing people. The
training started on 4th December 2017 and successfully completed on 10th
March 2018. The training was split into six batches for fourteen days each.  Read More . . .
