In addition, the expenditure that needs to be spent on hearing loss and the unaddressed hearing loss problems takes up the total cost to US$750 billion globally in a year. Individuals benefit from early detection in the hearing loss so they can be given hearing aids and no future damage occurs to their ears.

Increasing efforts being made the organizations in order to promote the usage and adoption of hearing aids and the patients that are suffering from different types of hearing loss in order to improve the hearing capability and prevent further damage to the ears and ear health.

There are organizations that are involved in proving assistance by setting up programs in order to decrease the cases of hearing loss and prevent further damage that can be caused to the individuals due to any lack of awareness. For example, The World Health Organization (WHO) is assisting the Member States in order to develop programs for ear health and hearing care that must be integrated into the primary healthcare system of every country. Some of the work WHO is carrying out includes;

providing technical support in the member states for facilitating the development in the national plans for hearing care, taking steps and measures in order to provide the necessary resources in order to effectively guide the healthcare providers and healthcare workers in regards to hearing care. Providing technical resources and other forms of guidance for the purpose of training the healthcare workers on hearing care and distributing the recommendations so as to address the major and preventable causes of hearing losses, undertaking advocacy so that the awareness regarding hearing loss and hearing problems can be raised about the rising prevalence and impacts that hearing loss holds.

Some of the few key points and platforms that are being focused are building effective partnerships, hearing care programs, and taking effective initiatives for making the hearing aids and other hearing assist solutions more affordable to the low-income population as well. Furthermore, WHO is also promoting their WHO-ITUY global standard in which they have prescribed the recommended hearing levels and other basic standards for home audio equipment and devices, so as to promote the practice of safe listening and not causing any damage to the ears, which is being achieved through their Make Listening Safe initiative. Hence, the presence of such safety guidelines and the continuous efforts being made by organizations such as, WHO among others are leading to an increased demand for hearing aids and thus contributing to the market growth further over the forecast period.
