Hearing Loss and Hearing Devices

Some have to wait for a long time to begin treatment as they are unable to afford the cost of hearing devices. Some have problems with maintaining their devices as the cost of maintenance is also expensive.

Dr Basyariatul Fathi Othman from UKM’s Institute of Ear, Hearing and Speech shares how the society can lend a hand.
