Neonatal baby screening

The Centre for Preventive Paediatrics offers a Neonatal Screening Program that aims at the early detection of two metabolic diseases, namely those of congenital hypothyroidism and phenylketonuria. Blood samples are collected from the neonates by all paediatricians in Cyprus and are forwarded to the centre’s biochemical laboratory for the appropriate analyses. You can find more details on these programs here. The Neonatal Hearing Screening Program is the third program available from the centre throughout the whole of Cyprus. It aims at the early detection and diagnosis of neonatal hearing impairment. All these screening programs are offered free of charge to the whole population of Cyprus: neonates and pregnant women alike – both in the public and the private sector. Should you wish to help the centre meet its financial demands you are welcome to place your donation here , however small or big.
