Sense International’s pioneering programme that screens for infant deafblindness in Kenya, was mentioned by the British High Commissioner to Kenya, Nic Hailey, in a speech at a reception for Kenyan delegates heading to the Global Disability Summit in the UK.

The High Commissioner said:

The UK is already working to promote disability inclusion here in Kenya, in partnership with many of you, including our work with Sense International to support childhood screening of sensory disabilities.
