That is the importance of hearing and the impact it can have in our lives. However, due to lack of awareness, many cases of hearing loss go undetected.
According to the World Health Organization, approximately 466 million people have hearing loss i.e. about 5% of the world’s population. And it is estimated by 2050 over 900 million people — or one in every ten people will have disabling hearing loss.
