Financial Assistance for Prevention Services
The “National Center of Deafness Genetics” plan was approved in September 2017, based on the national enactment of cochlear implantation of the National Commission. A genetics counselling unit was then established in all the cochlear implant centers of the country through God’s will and power. To that end and based on the compiled program, all people who go to cochlear implant centers go through counselling sessions and are informed on different prevention techniques (preventing the birth of a deaf child) in all stages. These counselling sessions are free of charge. However if the counsellor suggests sonography or genetic tests and etc. the applicant will pay for the expenses.
