To follow the mission of the WHO to ensure that high quality hearing aids are accessible and affordable  to serve the large population of individuals with hearing loss in low resource countries. There is an annual need for approximately 7 million hearing aids in low resource countries yet fewer than 1 million hearing aids are fit annually.
