A Fairer Hearing is an important collaboration between Better Hearing Australia and the Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis at the University of Canberra, shows that much needs to be done to address the level of unmanaged hearing loss in the community.
There are many people in our communities with a hearing loss who are struggling to access services or understand the best way to manage their hearing loss.
Launched last year in Hearing Awareness Week in Victoria, A Fairer Hearing highlights the pressing need for change in government policy so that all Victorians and Australians with hearing loss enjoy the highest possible standards of living.
Hearing Awareness Week was an opportunity to highlight the issues faced by people with hearing loss. As organisations who support individuals who have a hearing loss campaign for greater recognition of this issue.
A Fairer Hearing includes current data and a number of recommendations aimed at improving the outcomes for people with hearing loss.
