Combatting Hearing Loss with BeSci

WHO and ITU developed the global standard for safe listening devices to reduce the risk of noise-induced hearing loss through personal devices. Insights gathered via a survey and focus groups assessed users’ response towards the proposed messaging. Based on this, WHO recommended the inclusion of default features (e.g. volume limit) on audio devices. Leveraging a data sharing agreement with the private sector, WHO will analyse data to improve its understanding of people’s listening behaviours and the feasibility of safe listening recommendations, policies and practice.
