The federal parliament held an inquiry last year into the hearing health and wellbeing of Australia. The report detailed the current gaps in services, support and funding – and made 22 recommendations for Government action.
When all of Australia’s Health Ministers meet next month, I ask that you stand up for the 3.5 million Australians who are living with the personal cost of hearing loss.
It is time to create a great legacy for your Government and for millions of Australians.
