Globally, hearing loss is an understated concern, impacting an astounding 1.6 billion people. Of these, approximately 430 million suffer from some kind of hearing loss. The World Health Organization anticipates these figures to soar to 2.5 billion by 2050, with a staggering 700 million expected to face debilitating hearing challenges. Alarmingly, despite the means for intervention, a scant 20% of those affected have access to vital hearing aids. This void in care manifests in societal ramifications, escalating to feelings of isolation, mental health challenges, cognitive setbacks, and hindered career opportunities.
