The BAA has received confirmation from the Secretariat of the World Health Organisation that our organisation is now a member of the World Hearing Forum (WHF).

The WHF envisions a world in which no person experiences hearing loss due to preventable causes and those with hearing loss can achieve their full potential through rehabilitation, education and empowerment.

The goal of the Forum is to facilitate the implementation of the WHA70.13 resolution and support WHO’s advocacy actions in the field of hearing. The Forum has two main objectives:

  1. Undertake advocacy efforts for galvanizing support and raise awareness for ear and hearing care
  2. Promote networking for knowledge sharing

The BAA looks forward to participating in the Forum; promoting the work, vision, goals, and objectives of the Forum; participating in the activities, discussions and deliberations of the Forum and sharing knowledge and information with other members of the Forum.
