Executive Director Paige Stringer will join a contingent of hearing health professionals to present at the World Health Organization Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland tomorrow. 

This prestigious annual event features representatives of Ministries of Health from all of WHO’s 194 Member countries who will gather at the United Nations Palais to take part in the process of making decisions about global health issues and priorities. 

Thanks to the tremendous efforts of an international group of hearing health professionals, the issue of hearing loss is gaining some attention on the world stage. 

This year, a report on hearing loss has been requested as part of the Health Assembly. We are very honored to have been included in this incredible opportunity to represent the hearing health cause and the 360 million people who are affected by hearing loss around the world.
