European Federation of Hard of Hearing People

EFHOH works to promote awareness, understanding and collaborative practical actions that remove the barriers for hard of hearing people to reach their full potential with access to affordable, universal hearing care and rehabilitation, including hearing aids and cochlear implants. This is optimised by an accessible society with public services, hearing loops, subtitling, captioning and assistive devices.

World Hearing Forum

The World Hearing Forum is filling a critical gap by bringing a collective vision to advocacy and collaboration across hearing care. By sharing knowledge, skills and experiences from the field, the forum is galvanizing action towards a world in which no person experiences hearing loss due to preventable causes – and those with hearing loss can achieve their full potential through early identification and appropriate management of their condition.
