The impact of Covid-19 on health-care systems varies considerably and no country, whether high- or low- income has been spared the challenges. Ultimately, all pandemics become local as it falls to local professionals to find solutions that work for the population they serve.  Here, we learn from colleagues around the world who have grappled with these challenges and found ways to overcome them that will be of interest to the global cochlear implant community.
