The Universal Neonatal Hearing Screening Program (UNHSP) has been operating in the whole Poland since 2003. Its main goals are to perform a screening hearing in the 2-3 day of life in every newborn baby in Poland and to gather information on risk factors of hearing loss. In total, 505 centers participate in the UNHSP on three reference levels. As of January 19th 2016, the central data base (CDB) of the UNHSP has records of 4,845,036 children, which comprises 96% of all children born in Poland. Hearing loss was diagnosed in 12,974 children, i.e. in 3 out of 1000 children. Here, we present the most important results and conclusions of the UNHSP.
