Message from the President and Editor
With Coronavirus Covid-19 affecting all parts of the world, it has been a difficult few months for us all. In a lot of countries, cochlear implant surgery has not taken place, and this impacts hugely on profoundly deaf children, young people and adults. It also impacts on the cochlear implant manufacturers and all those professionals working with deaf people. EURO-CIU has done an excellent job of pulling together a survey of the impact of Covid-19 across Europe, so it is no surprise that a number of articles in this edition are on this subject. Please see the EURO-CIU article entitled “CI situation survey in EUROPE during the Pandemic”
We are grateful to everyone who has taken time to let us have articles for this newsletter.
Covid-19 is not going to disappear as quickly as we would wish, so our celebrations for EURO-CIU’s 25th Anniversary will not be easy to arrange – but do check out our website to keep up to date. However, we’ll meet “remotely” at the on-line General Assembly on the 3rd October.
The next edition of the EURO-CIU Newsletter will be due in September, so please let me have your articles and jpg photos by Monday 7 September 2020. Just e-mail them to Brian at email@example.com
With every good wish, and keep safe.
