11th Australasian Newborn Hearing Screening Conference | 2021
The ANHS Committee will be announcing a destination and date for the 2021 ANHS Conference in the near future. Please check back for updates.
Since 2001, the Australasian Newborn Hearing Screening Conference has served to showcase best practice in newborn hearing screening and related services and to be a driver for the development of new and better programs across Australia and New Zealand.
The very first conference gave rise to the National Consensus Statement on New-born Hearing Screening which was the forerunner of efforts to secure the situation that we enjoy today where more than 96% of all children born in Australia complete a screen for hearing loss.
The advancement of techniques used in newborn hearing screening and the promotion and dissemination of research into the issues that attend such programs in various locations in Australasia (and internationally) are fundamental aims of this important event. However, the costs involved in achieving these aims are very high.
