Hearing Health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples

Aug 1, 2023

Audiology Australia recognises that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have significantly higher rates of hearing loss and ear disease than non-Indigenous Australians.

As the peak national professional body for Audiologists, we are committed to improving the ear health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and closing the hearing health gap, calling on governments to implement widescale policy changes.
