328 million adults and 32 million children worldwide have significant hearing loss, reducing quality of life, productivity and causing developmental delay in children.
Ear, nose and throat (ENT) problems are amongst the commonest reasons for seeking medical help in primary care (25%) and emergency departments.
There is a global shortage of ENT specialists.
Medical students, doctors and nurses receive very limited training in this important area.
