Background 

The first ever World Report on Hearing was launched in 2021, as a technical guide outlining the  ongoing shifts  in the global epidemiology  of hearing loss,  capturing  available solutions and  current challenges for  ear and hearing care  and  also establishing  priorities to be addressed. It  highlights the link between addressing hearing loss and  achieving  the Sustainable Development Goals.  

The rational for hearing screening across the life course is well outlined in the report. The report shows that increasing hearing screening and early intervention coverage during the next 10 years requires an additional annual per capita investment of US$ 1.33. The resulting health gain during the 10-year period would avert nearly 130 million DALYs (disability adjusted life years), benefit 1.4 billion people and yield a return of nearly US$ 16 for each 1 dollar invested.  

The World Report on Hearing recommends that World Health Organization (WHO) Member States take urgent and evidence-based policy action to prevent, identify and rehabilitate hearing loss.  

To render technical support to the  Member  States  in implementing the recommendation of the world report into, WHO has developed the  HEARING screening: considerations for implementation. This handbook  provides  technical guidance  required for  establishing evidence-based  programmes  for  hearing screening  facilitating early identification and interventions to address hearing loss and related ear diseases in target groups. 
 

The purpose of the handbook is to provide guidance on how to undertake:

  • Hearing screening in newborns and infants  
  • School-based ear and hearing screening 
  • Hearing screening in older people
