Tellzim Reporter

WizEar has joined the Ministry of Health and Child Care's efforts to improve service standards at Masvingo Provincial Hospital after donating an Autoscope and Tympanometer for ear services at the referral institution.
The equipment, which was brought at an estimated cost of US$ 7 000, was sourced through the Germany government. 
Speaking during the handover, WizEar director John Matsekete said they have donated the equipment to Masvingo Gen Hospital to help particularly children living HIV and Aids.
"Ear related issues have not been getting much attention but now we are here to promote good health. Everyone will benefit from this initiative but we are currently targeting people living with HIV and Aids and adolescents.
"This equipment will assist in the early detection of problems, but major cases will be referred to Harare which may include operations," said Matsekete.
Programmes manager for non-communicable diseases in the ministry, Lee Nkala said there is need to raise ear health awareness in the province and to encourage pregnant mothers to have their ears screened.
"We now need to raise awareness in our communities about ear problems which can now be diagnosed at our hospital and we urge all expecting mothers also to be screened as well," Nkala said.news
