Increase in Hearing Disorders

According to a report published today by the Swedish Association of the Hard of Hearing, the number of people in Sweden with hearing problems is on the rise.

Women and those in work are the worst affected.

In its annual report the association says that some 500,000 Swedes suffer some form of hearing impairment and that the vast majority receive little or no help from authorities to obtain treatment.
