Hearing for Humanity is a humanitarian clinical audiology program offered through the Department of Speech and Hearing Science in the College of Health Solutions at ASU. The program assists with the hearing health care needs of children and adults in a Malawi, Africa, through direct service provision with a focus on training and education for a sustainable impact. It is estimated that in Malawi 4 percent of the population and 13.3 percent of children between the ages of 0-15 years have hearing and ear-related problems. Limited medical and audiological intervention resources exist to improve the situation due to the lack of trained professionals. Students and faculty from ASU, together with students at African Bible College and clinical officers the University of Malawi College of Medicine, administer aid, prevention education and treatment of ear and hearing disorders in the community. More than 2,700 individuals in Africa have been supported through this program.
