Information for Hearing Chairpersons

Organize Hearing Service Projects

360 million people worldwide have disabling hearing loss.  However, current production of hearing aids meets less than 10% of global need.

Hearing influences nearly every aspect of our daily lives, from our ability to earn a living to the quality of our relationships. Better hearing allows people to succeed in school, find good jobs, and participate in their communities. By addressing hearing loss we can promote better health, greater educational attainment, and higher levels of economic productivity.” – Worldwide Hearing.
