World Hearing Day 2018Dear ISA Members,

The theme for the World Hearing Day 2018 is:

Hear the future

This theme will focus on the:

  • rising prevalence of hearing loss globally;
  • importance of appropriate preventative actions to stem the rise;
  • need to ensure access to rehabilitation services and communication for people with hearing loss.

More information on the campaign will be available on the WHO webpage.

 

It is really the first time The Lancet has acknowledged the major contribution of deafness to the global disease burden. (It's 4th in the ranking!).

Lancet 2017 Global Hearing Health

Lancet, Supplementary Appendix, 2017

An Editorial in to-day's Lancet advocating that action be now taken to address the global burden of hearing loss. This further endorsement will help our advocacy work and raise the profile of hearing loss as a major health problem globally. We hope it will also encourage WHO to fulfil its obligations to global hearing loss following on the adoption of the WHA resolution

Invitation to participate in the development of the WHO Framework of Rehabilitation Services

The International Society of Audiology (ISA), represented by one of its members, Ariane Laplante-Lévesque, attended the World Health Organisation (WHO) Framework of Rehabilitation Services which took place on 29-30 June 2017 at the WHO Headquarters in Geneva. The meeting was part of the initiative WHO Rehabilitation 2030: A Call for Action. Twelve external participants and five WHO participants were present.

The meeting discussed the need or not of a WHO Framework for Rehabilitation (in other words, a tool to describe best practices in rehabilitation services). The two main goals of such a framework would be 1) to push for the inclusion of rehabilitation in Universal Health Coverage in countries and 2) to describe required workforce competencies to plan for human resource needs. In summary, all meeting participants could relate to the importance of these two goals, but had conflicting views on the relative importance of a Framework, especially given that several classifications for rehabilitation services already exist. Most authors of these classifications were present at the meeting. The idea of putting together a congress on rehabilitation workforce planning in around four years was mentioned. Since the meeting, Prof Richard Madden, who works on the International Classification of Health Interventions, has asked ISA for our input on their work, where they classify health interventions according to service provider (where and context) and service delivery (how, target group, service goals, etc). ISA will review audiology-related interventions to be included in this classification.

For more information, please contact Ariane Laplante-Lévesque via email.
