NEW: Application for Hearing Aids/Supplies Assistance
In April 2003, after meeting over a number of years, a body of audiologists, hearing health care professionals, and students decided to formulate a structure for individuals interested in providing humanitarian audiology services. Within a short time period, a list of purposes were agreed upon.
1. Provide a flow of information relevant to Audiology Humanitarian Projects (via email, webpage access, in person meetings, etc) between the regions seeking Audiology assistance and the Audiologists planning on traveling to regions in order to efficiently provide services of a philanthropic nature.
2. Establish a group or name that manufacturers can identify and potentially build a stronger commitment within humanitarian audiology projects.
3. Provide suggested guidelines to Audiologists who are considering leading projects.
4. Mentor students and others who are looking for Projects by linking them to established groups that provide philanthropic services abroad.
This body of Humanitarian Audiologists is not considered specific to any country or continent, and likewise, becoming part of this special group of Humanitarian Audiologists is not limited to any nationality or culture.
A special committee chaired by Rev. Garms, Director of CBM (Christoffel
Blinden Mission) from Bensheim, Germany, Foundation of the "World-wide Hearing Care for the Developing World", aims to take positive actions in removing barriers so that all programs are:
Affordable for the economics of the population
Accessible infrastructure and distances in a country
Acceptable to everybody needing services
Appropriate for the culture while still helping the person with her/his problems
Awareness in the community
