At Better Hearing Australia, we believe hearing loss is a ‘hidden’ problem with a large individual and social impact.
The fact that almost 1 in 6 Australians has a hearing loss is a big deal. It is a big deal because compared with other Australians, people with hearing loss experience poorer social, economic and health outcomes on almost every social indicator available.
