In late 2017 a national parliamentary report to the Australian Parliament called for hearing health and wellbeing to be made a National Health Priority. You can read a short summary of the report’s 22 recommendations – download Still waiting to be heard – Hearing Health inquiry report – simple language
Parliamentarians of all types support this. So, let’s not just talk about it – let’s put it into action!
Now it’s time to tell people why your organisation supports this campaign. Here are a few simple actions your organisation can take to help spread the word about the need to make hearing a national health priority.
1. Write today to your state or territory Health Minister
Please write to your local Health Minister and ask them to make a personal commitment to hearing health and wellbeing becoming a National Health Priority.
