What innovations and treatments are revolutionizing hearing health in Colombia?

What innovations and treatments are revolutionizing hearing health in Colombia?

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that more than 1.5 billion people worldwide suffer from some degree of hearing loss. Of these, an estimated 430 million have moderate or severe hearing loss in the better hearing ear.

According to the organization, hearing is a very valuable ability, and hearing damage caused by excessive noise is irreversible. “Hearing loss reduces the general quality of life for those affected and increases the cost of health care to the community. Noise-induced hearing loss is preventable, so more efforts should be made to avoid it.”

In the Americas region, about 217 million people have a hearing loss, or 21.52% of the population. By 2050, this number is expected to rise to 322 million. Most people with hearing loss do not have access to interventions. Untreated hearing loss has a far-reaching impact on the lives of affected individuals and their families.

On March 9, Foros Semana and Audicom invite you to a webinar on Hearing Health: Rehabilitation and New Technologies, a space where a group of experts will delve into the innovations and new treatments that are revolutionizing hearing health in Colombia. Call from 8:00 am to the digital platforms of SEMANA, Foros Semana and beyond week.com.
