Nagpur : It may seem hard to believe, but in the world today hearing loss is the forth leading cause of years lived with disability. Because people are living longer, adults over the age of 65 years arc growing in population and with potential hearing loss, in the near future. As per the census 2017 & WHO 10% of world population are in the mild-profound category of hearing loss and 4% in the Moderate to severe category of hearing loss. 4 to 5 in 1000 live births, children are born with hearing loss. Apart from age related hearing loss, in young adults, it may result from exposure to constant loud noise, radiation, oto-toxic drugs and professional hazard. 

The consequences of untreated hearing loss in adults are direct impact on speech understanding communication, enjoyment of music, social isolation, emotional & mental disfuntion, less job opportunities, to mention a few. The consequence of being born with a permanent hearing loss has long lasting developmental and educational problems. The brain is primed to learn language only between 2 - 3 years of age. In infants hearing can be screened with in a few hours of birth. Hence prevention and treatment of hearing loss should he a health care priority viewed through a public health lens.
