About the campaign – Break the Sound Barrier

About the campaign

Break the Sound Barrier aims to put hearing health and well-being on the national political agenda.

With one in six Australians affected, hearing health and well being deserves to be a national health priority.

This will unlock more funding for services, more investment in research and better community education.

The campaign is uniting people who are Deaf or have hearing loss or ear/balance disorders, service providers and health professionals  to demand we be heard by all levels of government.

A national health priority

Currently Australia has nine national health priorities.

Hearing health and well-being is not one of them.

To become a health priority requires agreement of the Commonwealth and State Governments through the COAG process.

This means we need to convince our representatives at both a federal and state level that we deserve their support.
