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 . .
