According to the World Health Organization, there are about 466 million people with disabling hearing loss around the world.1
In children, hearing loss is associated with speech development issues, difficulties making friends and learning problems in schools.2 For adults, there are reported associations between hearing loss and loneliness, and research has suggested that hearing loss could be linked to depression and dementia.3,4
However, there are options beyond hearing aids to help your patients improve their hearing and enhance their quality of life.
Since launching the world's first cochlear implant system almost 40 years ago, Cochlear has provided more than 550,000 implantable devices, helping people of all ages to hear.
