Conference Review

Thanks for participating in our 5th Annual Conference of the Coalition for Global Hearing Health!



To advocate for hearing health services and policies, to equip and empower hearing healthcare professionals, families, educators, communities and the people who are deaf or hard of hearing, and to encourage and perpetuate best practices.


To promote and enhance hearing health services in low-resourced communities


Join the Coalition movement to support our shared interest in hearing healthcare work and service that reaches low-resource communities.  As a member , you invest in the Coalition for Global Hearing Health efforts to improve Best Practices, Family/Community Empowerment, Embrace Technology, Enhance Education and Training, and Advocacy in related areas of hearing health.  


Our inaugural conference, held in June of 2010 at the headquarters of the American Academy of Otolaryngology in Alexandria Virginia was a great success. Representatives from 17 countries including professionals from all aspects of hearing healthcare, deaf educators and patient advocates met and discussed common interests. During our second conference at the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles we engaged in extended discussions about the highest priority concerns in hearing healthcare around the world and especially in low-resource settings. In the subsequent conferences at the EduPlex in Pretoria, South Africa and Vanderbilt University, we identified areas of need where the Coalition can have the most impact and further refined goals.  Now with committees established with designated chair-persons from around the world, the Coalition for Global Hearing Health is strategically positioned to reach consensus and accomplish the goal put forth. 

We have divided these goals into five categories: Advocacy and the Media, Training and Education, Technology, Best Practices, and Community / Family Empowerment. This year we continuted the tradition with breakout discussion sessions on these topics that will evolve into CGHH Steering Committees with the goal of continuing this work throughout the year.

The purpose of each annual conference is to enable us to come together to share the challenges we have faced and the solutions we have developed, to raise awareness of important issues and to explore new technologies to help us meet our goals. Thanks to your involvement and to the generous support of our past conference hosts, we continue our work to promote and enhance hearing health services in low resource communities.
