Programs for the early detection of congenital hearing loss have been successfully extended, especially in developed countries, overcoming conceptual errors argued against their implementation or criticism of their effectiveness. However, some difficulties and weaknesses are identified in them: the detection of late-developing hearing loss and the percentage of children who did not pass the screening and do not complete the diagnosis or treatment, being cases that are lost in the process.

The purpose of this document is to analyze these problems to determine points for improvement and to influence in a basic principle of the success of the programs: the continuous training of the interdisciplinary team.

The result of the review work carried out by CODEPEH is reflected in the formulation of recommendations aimed at updating the programs with the evidences that appeared in the last decade, addressing the progress in screening technology, the impact of current knowledge on the congenital infection by cytomegalovirus, the hearing loss genetic researches in the programs as well as the control systems of lost to follow- up cases.
