Newborn Screening – The Indian Perspective
We are incredibly excited to present to you Newborn Screening – The Indian Perspective by Dr. A. Radha Rama Devi. The aim of the event is to raise awareness and address concerns regarding Newborn screening.
Newborn screening (NBS) is now a well-recognized public health program in many parts of the world and even mandatory in certain countries. However, in India, which is the largest populous country next to only to China, NBS is still not a priority to be implemented for the welfare of people due to a number of reasons mainly the lack of political will. In such a scenario, how best the fruits of screening can be passed on to the public to benefit at least those with suspected inborn error.
This webinar will be hosted by Dr. Reena Kartha, Board Director of Research Programs at IndoUSrare
