    Hearing Healthcare in Remote or Resource-Constrained Environments
    (Cambridge Univ Press, 2018-07-19) Swanepoel, D.; Clark, Jackie L.; Clark, Jackie L.
    Background Hearing loss is a leading contributor to the global burden of disease, with more than 80 per cent of affected persons residing in low- and middle-income countries, typically where hearing health services are unavailable. Objectives This article discusses the challenges to hearing care in remote and resource-limited settings, and describes recommended service delivery models, taking personnel and equipment requirements into consideration. The paper also considers the novel roles of telemedicine approaches in these contexts for improving access to preventative care. Finally, two case studies illustrate the challenges and strategies for service provision in remote and underserved settings.
