Hearing health: raising awareness among the general public for better prevention

According to the WHO, a quarter of the population will suffer from hearing loss in 2050 and 1.1 billion young people are currently at risk of hearing loss. Inserm notes that 65% of those aged 65 and over are affected by deafness and, according to the IFOP, 20 million French people suffer from tinnitus. 1

Still according to the IFOP, communication from health professionals, associations and public authorities on the issues of tinnitus is “far from sufficient”.2

These figures underline the importance of awareness, early detection and treatment of hearing disorders. It is with this objective that CCMO Mutuelle wishes to raise awareness among the general public and thus continue its prevention action around hearing health, for the third consecutive year.

Free advice on board the converted bus

From June 4 to 15, 2024, the public is invited to board the CCMO Mutuelle bus. From 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., a hearing care professional receives participants individually for personalized interviews during which he performs a hearing test, provides advice and refers them to an ENT doctor if necessary. A hearing screening terminal and self-massage chairs are accessible to everyone. Advice sheets and information brochures are made available.

Mutual advisors also answer questions from participants.
