The purpose of the Coalition for Global Hearing Health is to advocate for effective hearing health services and policies, to equip and empower hearing healthcare professionals, families, educators, communities and those with hearing loss, and to encourage and perpetuate best practices. These activities contribute to our Mission Statement to promote and enhance hearing health services in low-resource communities.

In honor of March 3 World Hearing Day, the World Health Organization has released a fact sheet about pediatric hearing loss, its implications, and how it can be addressed. This communication piece is a part of a larger effort (that transcends pediatrics to include all forms of hearing loss) to raise the visibility of hearing health globally. The end goal is that every country has hearing health resources and governmental policies to support those affected.
View the fact sheet here and please share: http://www.who.int/pbd/deafness/world-hearing-day/2016/en/
