Glue Ear - A guide for parents

Photo: A guide for parents on Glue Ear

Glue ear is one of the most common childhood illnesses. Between 10% and 20% of school children in East Africa and South Asia have had glue ear at least once.

This booklet provides information for parents and families on what glue ear is, how to recognise if your child has the condition, and what can be done to help if your child is diagnosed with glue ear.
