Unfortunately, hearing loss is often neglected on the health care agenda even though the prevalence of hearing loss is growing. According to WHO, over 5% of the world’s population - 466 million people - have disabling hearing loss. WHO estimates that by 2050 over 900 million people - or one in every ten people - will have disabling hearing loss. Read WHO's research here.
We want to change this. At Audika, we are committed to address the issue in our everyday work and through larger initiatives, such as Campaign for Better Hearing. In short, we work to promote the notion that hearing care is health care.
