According to the World Health Organization, more than 360 million people have disabling hearling loss, with the greatest prevalence living in developing countries. Unfortunately, less than three percent of these individuals can afford hearing aids or even have access to the care they need.
Through their Hearing Missions, Starkey Hearing Foundation:
- Fit hearing aids and custom earmolds on qualified hearing aid candidates.
- Counsel and train hearing aid recipients, teachers, student ambassadors and patients on how to care for and operate hearing aids.
- Provide AfterCare information to hearing aid recipients on where to go and who to contact for follow-up services.
- Select and train local program teams to execute ongoing program activities.
"Alone we can't do much. Together we can change the world."
