Hearing loss or hearing impairment is the partial or total inability to hear which can develop immediately or over a period of time. Hearing loss is quite common problem and is due to noise, aging, disease or heredity. People with hearing loss find following conversations very tough and frustrating in different environments. Nonetheless, many do not admit that they have trouble hearing. This is due to societal stigma.

We at Better Hearing Australia, Canberra look at fighting the stigma towards progressive hearing loss which though a distasteful topic within our society is quite a natural outcome like any other medical condition. We look at providing people with progressive hearing loss, answers towards communicating in society irrespective of their hearing loss and providing society with information to stop the stigma which is set within our community thus allowing society to function and work in harmony.
