ALL EARS FOR HEARING AWARENESS WEEK
One in six Australians is affected by hearing loss – that’s an estimated 3.5 million people.
Hearing loss in Australia is mainly mild in nature, but one third of people experience a loss that is moderate or severe to profound.
The prevalence of hearing loss rises from 1% for people aged younger than 15 years to three in every four people aged over 70 years.
The number of Australians who are hearing impaired or deaf is increasing because of long-term exposure to excessive noise in the workplace, the environment and a result of an ageing population. Hearing loss is projected to increase to 1 in every 4 Australians by 2050..
