PM Gets Acquainted With Hearing Aid Implantation Center’s Activities




Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan received Doctor of Medicine Akira Ishiyama and Director of the Armenian International Medical Found Salbi Agarakyan, who have helped launch a hearing aid implantation program at the Cochlear Implant Center, operational by Erebuni medical center of Yerevan.

After briefing the Premier on the results of the ongoing program, Akira Ishiyama and Salbi Agarakyan thanked Tigran Sargsyan for consistent attention to the program. Over sixty successful cochlear implant surgeries were said to have been implemented at Erebuni medical center in the period under review.

Reassuring the guests of his continued support of the program, Tigran Sargsyan stressed that Armenian specialists need further training in this field.

The cochlear implantation surgery is deemed to be a costly medical intervention worldwide due to implants’ high price.

Prior to 2008, implants used to come to Armenia through charitable means. Starting 2008, cochlear implantation surgeries have been performed under the State order facility.

Mindful of the importance of this project, as early as in 2008 Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan described it as one of exclusive regional relevance, considering that the cochlear implantation surgeries are 100% effective.

The project gets financial support from the government of Armenia, the Armenian community of California and other sources.

According to statistics, one child in thousand is born without hearing in the world, with two or three others growing deaf during the first two years of life.
